What's news? Anything!

After logging out of my Yahoo! brand internet account, I noticed that one of Yahoo's highlighted stories was about Netflix's ten most rented films in its history. That hardly seems like compelling journalism, thought I, but I clicked on the link to check out how they handled this. To my surprise, they did one better than a mere article. The presentation was a slideshow. In other words, to find out what the most rented movies off Netflix are, I would have had to click something ten times, in addition to the already barely earned one click. That, my good sirs, is ten clicks too many.

Next up: the five most ordered ice cream flavors from Baskin Robbins.
