I think they can, but it will require a similar agreement to the one I assume that the people that make game consoles, chromebooks, and set top blu ray players have to sign in order to have a client that can access Netflix. (Not sure which way the money goes there.) If all he's saying is that the system won't prevent you from running other programs besides Steam, like a web browser, that's not the same thing as supporting Netflix. I agree that he might have meant that it would support a web browser in addition to Netflix, in which case so much the better.

At the end there's an update that has a comment from World Bank:

UPDATE: After FOX News published its story, a World Bank spokesman issued the following statement: "The Fox News story is wrong and is riddled with falsehoods and errors. The story cites misinformation from unattributed sources and leaked emails that are taken out of context. "Like other public and private institutions, the World Bank has repeatedly experienced hacking attacks on its computer systems and is constantly updating its security to defeat these. But at no point has a hacking attack accessed sensitive information in the World Bank's Treasury, procurement, anti-corruption or human resources departments."

Is this World Bank trying to reduce the damage, or is Fox as sorry as we know it is?
