New trivia

Since I've known about Netflix for nine months now, I feel like an "expert", so I'm continually astonished at the online newspaper articles that report on Netflix like it's a brand-new phenomenon, like this one, from Minneapolis-St Paul, Minnesota.

Not alot of news here, but there are a couple of bits of new trivia to be found:
"We're in every state, in 3,000 cities," says Shannon Clouston, senior manager of corporate communications for Netflix
Last astonishing 15 percent of Netflix shipments included the title "The Whale Rider."
95% of all online DVD rentals come from Netflix.

  1. a friend told me that this guy we went to school with was using Netflix in 1998 or 1999. this is incredible to me, because i had never heard of it then, and i didn't even have a dvd player back then.
