Hi Netflix nice bit of tanking your doing there, I guess this is what happens when you put your prices up and don’t do a good job of showing your customers where the value add comes in.
According to IBN live Netflix will end September with 600,000 fewer US customers than they had in June. I guess if the price hike means that those who are staying and paying the higher fee brings in more revenue then it’s not so bad, but thats pretty unlikely.
If your going to whack up your price, make sure that your customers still feel they are getting great value else you can kiss them goodbye.
The idea behind setting up this blog was pretty selfish really, I wanted somewhere to post what I’ve been reading, working on, wasting time looking at etc so that I’d have some sort of memory bank to look back on.
Anyway the last few weeks have been pretty exciting, we have a great team together and we are finally building some of the web app ideas that we’ve been talking about for the last 4 years.
When me and @alirussell first starting talking about products we’d like to build back in 2008 the aim was to have the ability to work from anywhere, nothing more required than a macbook and an internet connection. It seems like that aim has been realised, we’ve spent the last few weeks working from each others flats including a mammoth session last week that included @domlewis and @tomomalleycat:
(Whilst he may not look it, trust me Ali is enjoying himself #dotbombing in the zone, Dom on the other hand is in his element)
Setting up camp in my flat and hammering out code, ideas and designs in 48 hours was a great feeling! Watch this space in the next few weeks for details of our latest project.
Nike is about to make a ton of Back to the Future fans and geeks really excited. They are literally going to be coming out with the same shoe from Back to the Future II worn by Marty McFly. The shoes in the movie auto-lace and tighten by just pressing a side-button.
