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.

In the Netherlands a lot of sites use iDeal. It is an automated interface for electronic banking.
(the ammount, accountnumber and order number are already included you just Ok the transer of the funds.
The receiver get an e-mail that it is payed so they can ship the product immediately instead of waiting for the bank to actually finish the transaction. Which takes at least a day. Banks in the netherlands are slowly migrating from the coal powered steam driven computers.

Grown up Dutch people who go on holidays abroad do have credit cards. Gas-stations, tollbooth in France, car rental companies, hotels are a lot easier with it.
