    "I've subscribed to Netflix since they started their DVD service over a decade ago. I think I have the app downloaded on every device and really am amazed on how their service keeps evolving and improving over time. I tend to watch their original content now more than anything else and love that they have added a download feature so I can watch on the plane."

    "Stumble Upon is a website that enables users to provide comments and ratings on various types of content and topics on the web. I joined the site and reviewed some of my favorite web sites. As a member of this group I can read other members comments on website and discover new locations to visit. It reminds me of Yelp in that sense. With the availability of search engines and proliferation of review sites I found that Stumble Upon added little in unique search capabilities."
