Netflix may offer a cheaper streaming-only plan. There's still a of things not available streaming, and the quality could really use a boost. Still it seems to be a logical step. I'm surprised they haven't done it already.

Netflix has added NBC shows to streaming. Now I can get caught up on Battlestar Galactica. I need more hours in the day.

"What’s interesting to me is that this doesn’t sound like it’s going to be a stand-alone product — it appears the plan is to weave some social goodness into Google’s existing product base. Squeezing social stuff into their already successful products is probably Google’s best shot at getting widespread adoption — as I imagine it would be extremely difficult to get 500 million users to see the value in a competing service, and then decide to switch."

 "This site provides the highlights for construction of a CNC table with a 250 watt laser used to cut sheet metal. It includes an overview of the system and a description of the laser, its optics and how the laser is controlled. The system also has an X-Y table with CNC software."
Oh to have the time for such a project...
