I hate to be the one to tell you this, but that's not the same panorama. Heck, it's not even the same part of Mars. It's from the older robot, you can see the solar panels at the bottom. Curiosity doesn't have solar panels. Looking at the EXIF meta data embedded in that file, it's from 2005.

I already canceled my NetFlix account. I just wasn't seeing the value-add of waiting for the disc to arrive in the mail, when I can get most movies I already want to watch immediately somewhere else (iTunes, drive to Movie Gallery, Amazon Unbox on my TiVo).

I use Mac at home (I work on a Windows box all day at work, why would I put that in my house?) and I got tired of waiting for Netflix to get out from under Microsoft. Now it's clear they never will.

On the other hand, I can't figure out why anyone would by a AppleTV either. TiVo works for my family just fine.

Anyway. How many hours can/should a person spend sitting in front of a monitor (answer: all waking)?
