Of course now we can add large-scale technical glitches to other holiday annoyances like non-working Christmas lights, traffic, closed businesses, and crowded airports. I wonder how used we’ll get to them.
I imagine not very. We expect instant service from our technology, even if we usually accept much less. However I imagine Netflix and Valve know this and will work to correct things for next year.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
