Netflix, the giant streaming company, was founded in 1997 in California. It seems like it was centuries ago when the company started as a DVD rental company that sent movies to your home via snail mail. It wasn’t until 10 years later when they combined the original DVD rental service with over-the-internet streaming.

In September 2011, Netflix sold its DVD mail-in section to Quickster, and that’s when they began the movie streaming revolution worldwide. Here is a timeline of the evolution of Netflix:
With all these changes, Netflix is still fighting its main issue: users sharing their accounts. Sharing your account might be coming to an end as new artificial intelligence will be deployed soon across Netflix’s platform.

Research done by cordcutting.com showed that 26% of Netflix users share their account, which is becoming very expensive for the company, causing it to lose about $192 million dollars per month.

The software developed by Synamedia will identify each user and its location. This technology will also be able to assess if the user is legitimately using the account at an alternate location during a trip or a vacation. The date of deployment of this new technology is still unknown, but be sure that very soon, you will no longer be able to share your Netflix account without paying the extra fee.

Ready for the outdoors!

Although we do not have very well defined seasons, the weather changes enough to create different vibes in and around the city.

The moderate Spring weather accompanied with sunny clear skies is inviting to get back to the outdoors and be more active. The backyard also gets more use in the form of the very Louisiana tradition of the crawfish boil, which we learn more about in our food section.

Short day-trips are perfect during Spring and the Northshore offers some amazing destinations for nature and food lovers. Just sitting down on the bank of the Tchefuncte River, looking at the boats pass by can be a relaxing change of pace and scenery.

In this edition, we visit the Northshore to explore some of the Latin restaurants in the area. We will be coming back to enjoy the different places and activities that the Northshore has to offer. St. Tammany hosts a vineyard, a safari, strawberry and blueberry patches, breweries, swamp tours, museums, kayaking, and tubing, among so many other interesting things. The Northshore is the perfect destination when you need a little getaway.

But for now, we prepare to get outdoors in New Orleans to enjoy the great music during French Quarter Fest and to see the national and international superstars coming to Jazzfest. See you out there!
