    But you still need to have all these subscriptions. If only there was one place where all the different TV channels were bundled together, with a single subscription...Oh wait, isn't that cable TV? True, however, that the cable experience is awful.

    The presentation here can't be beat -- there's quite seriously nothing as archaic as traditional cable TV menus and on-demand systems.

    Tim Cook is back up now
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 5:25:09 PM
    That's the main reason I've never been a cord cutter -- as a news guy, I'm too addicted to flipping between 24/7 live news channels.
