I have never seen mediahint blocked and I use chrome to access US netflix from the UK. Here is the thing about that.... netflix know very very well that this is happening... they have to with the amount of ML profiling and monitoring they do. My account is clearly marked as a UK account and it would be trivial for them to check against that. But they don't. The do a geo test and if you pass that you get thru. They know... they don't care. It means more people will sign up for netflix if they can get both UK and US access.

I think the confusino is that none of that shit is the OS. It all looks like the user land of the OS. My udnerstanding is that BBOS10 is QNX Neutrino at the core... that OS is rock solid(former QNX system developer here). It's one of the most stables OSes around... makes Linux./BSD look like DOS is some regards.

I am the head of a US TV network and you are in your first meeting with me. You want to offer ala cart TV content to just anyone? Are you mad? I already have agreements about exclusivity with regional TV stations. And there is just no fucking way I am going to let you allow that shit out of the US... do you have any *fucking* idea about the agreements we have with overseas networks? Your fucking dreaming! Get the fuck out of my office and come back when you are prepared to be more reasonable like netflix, apple and google!

My missus does the same thing and it works for her. I tried it after being impressed by it and I coudln't see any improvement for me... memory is a funny thing. My missus remembers phone numbers by remembering the pattern of pushing the buttons on a phone... she will even mime typing the number to recall it. That doesn;t work for me at all... I remember phone numbers by breaking them into sub groups and remembering those.
