Comment Re:Too much thin phones and thin batteries (Score 1) 121

3500 mAh is a problem. Just stick to 3200 and optimize the apps (we have been doing it for 60 years, and until they will discover something like Moore law for batteries, I guess will have to stick to software optimization for now)

My previous phone was Droid Maxx, first phone with 3500 mAh battery and it was hitting like crazy. Eventually it started to bulge (luckily after retirement), and I disassembled it and disposed of it before it exploded.

Comment Foreign content (Score 1) 103

Well, I am here in Canada often looking for DVDs of Bollywood movies. The only place I can buy then are $1 DVDs at ethnic grocery stores.

So yah, I have paid in the past, now its more online, some sudo legit IPTV/streaming providers stream movies netflix style, but its grey as a lot of streamed movies have no Copyright registration here in Canada.

Comment Netflix 4K only on Smart TV (Score 4, Interesting) 507

I had a lengthy conversation with netflix support, apparently, there is NO way to view 4K netflix content except for a smart TV that supports "software" as they call it. Essentially, its DRM as demanded by studio.

So as in my case, I have 40" 4K monitor, all the hardware, a 4K plan with netflix, 50mbps internet, but I cannot get 4K because its only available on these so called Smart TVs.

Before we argue, 4K content is a lot lot sharper. I do want it, but Netflix won't stream it to my PC.
