You make a fair point but for $10 a month and a slingbox (apx $99 one time) I can do a DVR and see their crap and everyone else's. So sure I might miss an episode cause the DVR had a brain fart and/or didn't have room or I forgot etc so then I'd be left with either renting and/or finding alternative ways to view the missed episode OR simply forget about it since one missed program isn't gonna destroy my world (like it might have when I was younger).Now at 99 cents that...
You can buy them on DVD for apx 1.50 an episode and get extras and bonus crap.
Quick look at the numbers.... 2009 Q3 Net Income 3.2b 2009 Q4 Net Income 3.0b 2010 Q1 Net Income 2.5b 2010 Q2 Net Income 4.0b 12.5b in profits over a 12 month term and they are spending how much on this new technology this year? 700m?!?! Not sure how they can swing it....

While it might have been said before, doesn't anyone else find it oddly interesting that all of these reports where Apple is showing such a decline in numbers and android is showing such an increase are all reporting on THE LAST 3 MONTHS of the iPhone 3Gs lifecycle? I mean, I'm not arguing that Android isn't making up some ground... I'm sure they are. The'd have to be given the fact that vendors can distribute their phones without paying a dime for the work that went...
And is unknowingly dumbing down all the cell phone makers in the process who previously developed/wrote/maintained their own OS and/or had multiple phones running under multiple OSes. Thanks to Google they've given all that up... hmmm I wonder whats gonna happen when google tires of Android. After all those pesky 'pet projects' at Google come and go like the wind.
