Wow. This online game is truly amazing. The designer must be the ultimate TV fan of all time. You think of a television character, then answer a series of ‘yes and no’ questions. Then the computer guesses which character you are! I know; I was skeptical, too, but it worked every time, and didn’t take very long for the computer to guess. I chose obscure/outdated characters—Blair Warner, Punky Brewster, and Laura Ingalls—and it guessed each time! …

Now, Netflix is worth about $1.4 billion smackers, while Blockbuster is trying to keep afloat at …
