I've got a mix of over-the-air, a Roku serving YouTube, and Netflix streaming, and the non-plus version of Hulu on my laptop. It's not bad, I'm entertained, but the selection isn't all that great and about half of the time I say "Oh, I think I'd like to watch $X" but I have to settle for $Y. I don't watch a whole lot of television to begin with, so it's not that big of a deal for me.
If you are a serious TV watcher (I'm not) and don't want to torrent (I don't), I would recommend at a minimum Hulu or Hulu Plus (I've never used the 'Plus' version), Netflix streaming and DVD service.
The Chinese military accused the U.S. on Friday of launching a global "Internet war" to bring down Arab and other governments, redirecting the spotlight away from allegations of major online attacks on Western targets originating in China."

And encrypting multiple time with the same key will, for any reasonably secure crypto system*, not increase security. I understand that from a theoretical point of view, but from a practical point of view -- how would you break an encrypted file if it is doubly encrypted, even if you knew both algorithms involved. How do you solve the problem of recognizing if you'd actually decrypted with the first key, so that you can start working with the second key?? Haven't you increased the key-space to an exponent of itself (in practical terms), and therefore created something vastly more secure?
Multiply encrypting will only increase your security if there isn't some other key that you could have used that yields the same results. For example, if we use "E(M,K)" means "Encrypt message M with key K" then encrypting twice would be E(E(M,K1),K2). The problem is, if there is some OTHER key K3 such that E(M,K3) = E(E(M,K1),K2), then you really haven't added any security by doing that.
Obligatory disclaimer: everything I know about cryptography I learned from reading Bruce Schneier's books, and they're all in storage at the moment

Banks prefer a conservative approach, using tried and tested 18th century steam punk hardware.
No kidding. One of the many projects I have worked on over the years is some of the infrastructure for Continuously Linked Settlement, which automates a huge chunk of foreign currency exchange. Not too long after the "Go-Live" date, I needed to exchange a sizable chunk of money between Euros and dollars that required me to go in-person to my bank.
I was really looking forward to participating in the modern 21st century economy, and seeing the high-tech whiz-bang front end the bank had wrapped around our back-end... and I was very disappointed when the whole transaction boiled down to the bank guy filling out a form and putting it in stack of other forms.
