    How many other Fortune 500 company presidents would make this offer? Steve Balmer? Haha, sorry. Eric Schmidt? Oops, sorry again.

    UK Netflix is a pretty poor showing compared to US Netflix.  And iTunes selection isn't all that wonderful either, which is why a variety of sources is better.

    Not wanting to be left behind, I am told there's now a long line of lieutenants at Samsung wanting to donate various body parts to The Great Leader there.

    Maybe, but iTunes is also your Airplay, radio, and multimedia (i.e., music, photos, and videos) device.

    Maybe Jobs didn’t like TV but he also disliked the Newton. And later came up with something that was conceptually in the same space that did pretty well.
