A couple of years back, I realized something very strange. Netflix’ streaming service was everywhere. In fact, if I look at my current home entertainment set-up and digital devices, I can access my queue and watch a movie any time I want to using my blu-ray player, my Wii, my computer, my tablet, my set-top box, and my phone — something that’s even more ridiculous when you consider that three of those devices are hooked up to the exact same dang screen.

QUICK MAKE A COW
DUDE, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING. IS THAT A COW?
