    Just a fix for taking an iPad's baseband off an iPhone if you were dumb enough to put it on there in the first place.:crazy2:

    There was a documentary I couldn't find. It's on iTunes in the US, but not in Canada. I tweeted the producers to ask them what my options were, and they directed me to a youtube vid that required 4.99 via google wallet to watch. It worked really well. Just like Netflix, only more 'spensive.

    I've tried NetFlix 3 separate times and always ended up canceling. I'm just not seeing it.

    This was before the big split between streaming and DVDs, but overwhelmingly I would search for a new A-list DVD I wanted and it would rarely be available for weeks and weeks after it's release. Then, when it came to the streaming part, I thought the selection of movies wasn't just bad, it was a joke - like the bargin bin near the cash register of a pawn shop.

    The only thing I actually used was the streaming feature to watch reruns of old TV shows I used to like such as 24 or even older shows from the 80s and 90s and it was cool to have the entire season available however what started to bother me was the lack of video and audio quality with the streaming. It was like I was watching television with rabbit ears again.

    Back to HD cable + loading up DVR for decent selection + Red Box for the occasional Blu-Ray.
