netflix vs. vongo: pre-fight

as anyone who’s ever even heard of the funcave before knows…

your friendly neighborhood happyfunboy went through a recent bit of surgery.

to the tune of being out of commission for about 5 weeks.

you might imagine that, after spending that much time relegated to a recliner in front of the tv…

at some point, reruns of the original star trek series & the 2005 world series of poker just weren’t going to cut it.

Spock-idic-mask

so…

it seemed like an amazingly opportune time to try out netflix, the online dvd rental service, which had been highly recommended to yours truly months earlier by the mastermind and her robot army.

but a funny thing happened…

due to some logistical issues, and a bit of coincidence…

yours truly also decided to try out vongo, a competing online rental service, at nearly the same time.

and in no time, your friendly neighborhood happyfunboy had locked both of these services in the steel cage here at the funcave and turned them loose upon one another to see who would be left standing.

so, happyfunboy productions proudly presents…

stacked up, pound for pound, this looks like a serious mismatch. how could anyone compete with the power of netflix? a service at its prime, netflix looks to reign for a long long time.

remember tho…

in boxing, speed is power. the same goes for services like this. and vongo, hungry newcomer that it is…has speed to spare.

let’s watch it all go down…

ding ding!!!
