    he's either the biggest ***** on revealing a post war strategy.... or he's got an leg in Netflix shares. i wouldn't mind Yahoo buying Netflix.... i think anyone at this point will do a better job than Hasting.
     
  3. You should look @ what the CEO said. They don’t need Netflix when Yahoo can offer the same thing in streaming. He is a thought. What if it was strictly advertising driven? You know like it used to be for the big networks. Free to the public! Netflix people would leave and Yahoo wins!

    That is the real story.
     
  4. If yahoo buys netflix, i'll stop using netflix. I can't believe they've followed in AOL's footsteps like they have. I tried to help a relative over the holidays stop using that stupiod yahoo webmail, and just use a light email client...only to find that she would have to pay a monthly fee to yahoo to do such a thing! Hotmail/Live mail is free...google mail is free... and yahoo has to follow aol's decision of making people pay for email...or give it away free on a crappy web interface with way too many ads. Horrible.

    I will definitely cancel netflix if yahoo libtard news buys it. Yahoo constantly endorses the democrat party and I cannot tolerate it. I cancelled my paid email account with them a few years ago.
