Netflix testing $7.99 and $8.99 streaming-only plans in US

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on October 24th, 2010

Netflix has quietly made streaming-only plans a reality in the US. The odd part is that depending on which computer and web browser you use, you’ll see a different result. For instance according to Engadget, a Windows desktop running Chrome was invited to sign up for the same $7.99 disc-less plan as Canadian customers enjoy, while Firefox asked for $8.99 for the same, and in both cases it would cost $9.99 in total if you want physical discs as well.

It all adds up to this. You may get a $1 discount if you only use the company’s online service now, but if you like DVDs delivered to your door you may find yourself paying for those who don’t.

AT&T thinking about cheaper iPhone plans?

AT&T thinking about cheaper iPhone plans?WWDC approaches. You know what that means. Apple rumors galore. Today’s Apple rumor has BusinessWeek saying that AT&T is working on cheaper iPhone data plans. We don’t have many details, so we don’t know just how it would work.

One popularly-discussed option is a $20 “limited-access” plan which could be potentially offered alongside a cheaper iPhone to be introduced at WWDC. The big question is, what exactly does “limited access” mean? If it won’t allow you to do anything fun, no one will care.

Make your own paper R2-D2
A long time ago in a galaxy far away…someone used the Death Star plans to build a paper droid and messed up the whole rebel plan. And so can you, if you have an ink jet printer, some scissors and glue.

It’s pretty accurate for paper, looks pretty awesome, plus it’s articulated. And if you really want to prove your paper droid making skills, you can use vector-based PDF plans to print and build your own life-sized R2 unit, but don’t let the Empire get a hold of the plans.
