Comment half-and-half cubicle (Score 1) 347

I dwell in cubicle-land, and at the end of last year I raised half of my work surface, including my keyboard/monitor/mouse, to standing height. Within my small work group we have a variety of approaches, with almost everybody at least partly at standing height. One has a tall chair; another has dual monitors with one at each level.

Most of us are pretty happy standing most of the time, and agree that part time sitting is an important component. I think I may eventually go with a second monitor, since I don't do all that much work that doesn't involve my computer. Some days I don't sit at all.

What I don't understand is why Hastings believes that the major studios will allow Netflix to operate the online distribution at the price levels consumers demand. ...the recent price increase...

Might not the recent price increase be an indication that Hastings knows full well that the studios are determined to get more money out of streaming? Megan McArdle recently wrote an interesting piece about this very topic. Faced with choosing among only bad alternatives, it's no surprise that Netflix picked a bad one.
