Mood Changes - It's Time to Streamline Streaming Services, Protect Content or ...?

“I know we don't have any customers, but I thought that was a bad thing, not like, a business strategy.”  -- Barry, “High Fidelity,” Touchstone Pictures, 2000

Last Sunday evening, we played Twister with our daughter after she complained, “I’m bored and there’s nothing on TV. 

Are you kidding me? 

We have Netflix, Disney +, Amazon Prime, Apple TV +, Hulu, Pluto, Tubi and Peacock streaming to us here in Silicon Valley; and you can’t find anything? 

You’re not trying!

But we rolled out the Twister mat and went to work climbing, stretching, falling over each other, getting some exercise and having fun.

We’re pretty sure we were more agile in “the old days” and despite the fun it sorta’ reminded us of the constantly changing entertainment world with everyone jumping from one circle to be at the right place at the right time.
