O.K., let me be clear – I am not recommending you buy the stock of Netflix, or that you short Blockbuster – I don’t make stock picks. Also – I don’t own any Netflix or Blockbuster stock (or any individual stocks for that matter)
I love Netflix. I’ve loved it from the beginning and think that they’ve done a great job. I’ve tried the blockbuster service and was not happy with it. If you don’t currently use Netflix I encourage you to give it a try, it is incredibly cool and easy to use (even my Mom & Dad now use it). Evidently Netflix will start attempting to offer movies via direct download, yet another innovation.
This post has nothing to do with personal finances, but I just thought you should know how much I enjoy the Netflix service.
