So, Netflix jacked up their prices. Not surprisingly, after nearly doubling their rates (or cutting their services in half, depending on your perspective) about a million and a half of us dropped the service. Not to worry. I’m sure the suits at corporate headquarters (or, rather, Corporate Headquarters, all caps!) were prepared for such contingencies. Or, if they weren’t, they’ll make some corrections and keep rolling.
It does concern me that we rely so heavily on single, solitary companies who reap massive profits. This contributes to the inequality in the United States, which very few people in the United States care to think about. I think our current level of inequality is at the root of our economic woes. So, as a general rule, I try to never patronize the Big Guy Businesses. For now, though, I must confess that I’m sticking with Netflix, at least for another month or two. I wish there were a more lofty reason, but the basic thing here is that I’m I am in love with documentaries.
