Multimedia, AV An interesting anecdote at MinimalMac about television being broken. The author's young daughter, who is growing up in a Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/etc. household, was confronted with actual TV for the first time, and wonders why she can't pick what to watch, why the shows are being interrupted all the time, and so on. Clearly - TV is broken.

Most people in The Netherlands don't have credit cards? What do you use to purchase items? Certainly not Cash or Cheques?

It must sound really alien and stupid to you but the idea of credit cards sound even more stupid to dutch people. Most people use a 'pin pas' a card with a magnetic strip and these days a chip. You use a four digit Personal Identification System(PIN) number. It goes directly from your bank account to the merchant.
By default you pay with money you have but you can activate an automatic debt if you want to spend more than you have.
