Netflix is weird

Netflix is making some changes, setting themselves up to divest their DVD-in-the-mail business while retaining the streaming business. They're probably right that streaming is the future. But it seems like splitting their business now, instead of letting it naturally fade away, just doesn't make sense. People are baffled. We've been using both the DVD and streaming services. The streaming is a bit wonky. It's impossible to fast-forward or rewind, the choices are limited, and the connection is unreliable. That said, it was a nice free extra, with the assumption that it would improve over time. Not sure what we'll do now, with the price increase and the odd fact that you have to manage two separate queues.
