Netflix Climbs the Growth Wave as Cable TV Slides


Things change quickly. A few short years ago, Netflix was nothing more than a mail order video rental business. Since then, it has been growing rapidly and changing. Believe it or not, Netflix today has more U.S. subscribers than cable TV. That’s an amazing accomplishment — and a major hit to traditional cable television. Netflix and cable TV are two different technologies on opposite sides of the growth wave. Cable TV has grown over several decades, but its growth wave has crested in recent years, and it now is on the decline.

Apple reportedly set to reuse the Apple Watch design in next iteration

There’s nothing necessarily wrong with sticking with a tried and true design – just look at the HTC One series or the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 – but with more attractive circular Android Wear watches, the Gear S2, and so many other compelling options, refinement and improvement seems to be the name of the game when it comes to the smartwatch market. Not so for Apple though, at least if recent rumors are to be believed. Reportedly, the Apple Watch 2 will look the same on the outside with internal upgrades only.
