To The Internet Television!

This is the world we live in:

I got an email from Netflix letting me know, just in case we might be interested, that they've added the 4th season of Breaking Bad to their streaming video lineup.

In fact, we are interested. As they no doubt know considering we watched all the previous seasons this way.

Then we can immediately turn on the TV, and the PlayStation, which plays games that look like movies and also transfers video through the internet at our whim.

So we live in this world in which a company knows what we want, tells us when it's available, and we can be looking at it two minutes later, in between playing video games.

Yeah, it's weird. Convenient, though!

It only weird that 10 years ago people flipped out about this sort of thing. Now I get mad when my grocer's receipt coupons aren't for my favorite brand.

The wrong brand?! Those bastards!

It's also true that quite frequently I get email notices about things I don't care about at all. The system clearly is not all-knowing...yet.
