Never say never. Here's one of the news articles that that mentions how upset users, myself included, were when we lost the option from within the iPad app: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/netflix_cont...

Sweet! This is the first time I've heard of this product. I will definitely be buying their elbow and knee pads (non-bulky, stays in place, and material gets harder on impact to protect my bones)!

AAPL has always been backwards like that; especially after a keynote and financial results. I guess, despite Apple's consistently conservative forecasts, analysts over inflate their expectations.
