Tied to Apple Store

In reply to Richard Adhikari
This is where Apple is going. They want you renting all media and not owning anything. I pay a fee for Netflix every month. But I also have unlimited viewing of content. I can do this on my PC. I am not sure why I need to spend $99 on a Apple TV to do this? I can also watch Netflix on Xbox or on Wii. I watch my TV shows for free so I don't need to pay Apple to do so. Apple needs to realize that people have good options already in this area. If I am going to pay for my shows. I might as well get cable or satellite and get a DVR so that I have storage.

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
