On January 21, 2002, NetFlix mailed me my first three discs (Brazil, Girlfight, and Sex in the City). Today, they mailed me my 1,175th disc (Toy Story 3).
Originally, NetFlix seemed (and was) forward thinking for it's innovative use of new technology and inventing a service most people didn't even realize they wanted. It seems strange now, that technology has made both DVDs and The Postal Service less relevant.
But I suspect I'll remain a loyal subscriber until the DVD by Mail service is as much a relic as the nickelodeon or the video rental store.
