The road to become the best it can be will surely be a long one, but Netflix is certainly doing all it can to be covered on all grounds. Most recently, the streaming giant announced that it has reached a settlement with the National Association for the Deaf which ensures that the company will offe

Amazon is finally catching up to the rest of the streaming industry and adding closed captions to some of its Instant Video selections. For the moment the library of CCed content is pretty slim, with only 169 shows and 74 movies, but we'd expect that to grow pretty quickly. That does put the burge

Mobile phones have become such a critical part of our daily lives, and apparently they're becoming a critical part of our deaths now, too -- but if you're going to spend the rest of eternity inside a single phone, do you really want it to be a Nokia 7250?
