Comment Why do they keep the name "Note"? (Score 3, Interesting) 70

The name "Note" is strongly linked to the burning batteries, even more than "Samsung". So they're trying to make everyone forget about the battery disaster by using again the name "Note" on a new - hopefully not burning - phone? That's a big mistake. They should swallow the bad year 2016 and start with a complete new brand name next year.

Comment But what about "its other content"? (Score 1, Interesting) 72

I go to Netflix to watch something, but not something in particular, not anymore anyway. Because most of the time the movie I want to watch is not on Netflix. So, I try the "original content", which, on average, is rather watchable. But after watching some of it, like Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, the "original content" does show a lot of non-original patterns, some good old recipes to make the shows watchable, but not great (House of cards is still ok) ; these shows will be forgotten in a few years. The "original content" is very far from Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad or The Wire. The more it goes, I feel Netflix becomes the Mac Donald's of TV. You go to Mac Donald's to eat something edible, not something great.

But while the hotshot programmers and big data geeks get to play with the shiny new toys, you're busy waiting for the robots to come and take away your job. It doesn't have to be that way. Whether you cut your teeth on Unix and AIX or you tire of doing the necessary but thankless tasks that come with keeping the lights on and the datacenter humming, there's still time to reinvent yourself.'
