Umm isn't android linux ?

Netflix seems to run fine on my tablets and googletv...

It's difficult to be a law abiding citizen because there are so many laws that it's difficult to not run afoul of at least a few.

OK, name one crime that I could innocently commit and wind up in jail for.

How about owning too many dildos in texas?
