Just tell us what we all want to know. Does netflix work yet?

I have a 60 gig and installed yesterday morning (in the US) and it went fine. I was wondering if I should wait to see if there were issues. Anyway, I wasn't too impressed with the changes. The trophies were the only thing I really noticed, and none of the games I have support them.
The google search from the xmb is kind of useless if you can't do it while in the game. I can't tell you how many times I've been in a game and wanted to search for info about the game I'm playing and would love to just pause, switch over, do the search, and go back, but no. You have to quit, even now with the in-game xmb. What a half-assed addition.
I still like my PS3 better than the xbox, though. It hasn't done anything like an RRoD yet, and my xbox died 3 times before I traded it for the PS3.
People get the terms wrong all the time. Here's the list:
Taser - A Brand name for a device that shoots barbed wires into it's target and then administers a jolt.
Stun Gun - A Hand Held shocking device WITHOUT wires. You have to hold it up to someone (preferably against bare skin). These are generally small devices that could fit into a lady's handbag.
Cattleprod - A more powerful Stun Gun that is usually much longer and wand shaped. They are used to convince a cow to get a move on, so they are stronger so that the cow can feel it (they're not really made for humans, so they'll hurt like a bitch) and they are on a wand so that if the cow kicks out in response they can't reach you as easily.
Of these, the cattleprod is probably the most powerful, but because there are no barbed wires sticking in you, the jolt is much shorter. So a Taser probably hurts the most. Stun Guns are the most fun. I was at a party once where this dickhead was zapping people's hands with a Stun Gun and making them drop their beer.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Dr Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Right. That's bad. Okay. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
I went through 3 broken 360's and only one return was for a RRoD. The other's were for dvd drive issues (mine scratched disks for no reason).
When I got the 4th one back as a replacement for the 3rd broken one, I just swapped it at a gamestop for a PS3. I've never had an issue with that.
Paris, because having her image on the page next to my post is as close as a nerdy gamer dork like me will ever get.
