Bird Box : Dumbasses cause Netflix to issue warning

Dumbasses cause Netflix to issue warning

https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2019/01/02/bird-box-challenge-netflix-urges-fans-stop-internet-craze/2466908002/

Perhaps unsurprisingly in today's media-obsessed world, people have been uploading and sharing videos of themselves, wandering around blindfolded, doing the #BirdboxChallenge, which is inspired by scenes depicted in the movie.

In the film, Bullock (Melanie) and two children (Boy and Girl) navigate a post-apocalyptic world while blindfolded to avoid seeing an ominous figure. In "Bird Box," seeing the mysterious monster has deadly consequences.

In hopes of going viral, people have attempted to emulate the movie by wearing blindfolds, staggering through their homes and fumbling around outdoors which, in some cases, has led to painful results.

In one video, a blindfolded family of three is seen running around indoors for 8 seconds before a toddler smashes into a wall. In another video on Twitter, a motorist covers his eyes with a beanie hat while driving on a highway.

Netflix issued a wake-up call on Twitter, writing: "Can’t believe I have to say this, but: PLEASE DO NOT HURT YOURSELVES WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE. We don’t know how this started, and we appreciate the love, but Boy and Girl have just one wish for 2019 and it is that you not end up in the hospital due to memes."

oh thank god i thought this was gone be about warning against sharing your account with too many people.

I currently rent out full netflix access to some 350 customers at the discounted rate of $7 a month just using my account and i'd hate to lose that because some people got too greedy.

Bring. More. Sheep.

Sharing your Netflix password? This software will track you down

Software specialist Synamedia is touting a new technology that it says can track down users who share accounts and passwords for streaming services such as Netflix.

The U.K. based firm is showing off the software at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The technology, it says, “combats the rapid rise in account sharing between friends and families, turning it instead into a new revenue-generating opportunity for operators.”

The Credentials Sharing Insight software could have a major impact. Synamedia cites statistics from media research firm Magid, which say that 26 percent of millennials share passwords for video streaming services.

The technology can also be used to detect and shut down large-scale, for-profit credentials sharing accounts run by fraudsters, according to Synamedia.

“It uses AI, machine learning and behavioral analytics to identify, monitor and analyze credentials sharing activity across consumer accounts,” the company said in a statement. “It allows operators to turn casual sharing into incremental revenue, as well as detect and apply enforcement procedures on fraudulent, for-profit credentials sharing accounts.”

On https://www.digitalspy.com/tech/a25840595/netflix-account-sharing-passwords-software/, it says, "There's no need to panic if you're just sharing with family and friends, as Netflix may just nudge you to upgrade to a premium account. However, if it finds it is being shared wider and that passwords are being sold through for-profit operations, then accounts could potentially be shut down."

It would've been funny if the cameras weren't even recording and he didn't know because he was wearing a blindfold. So then he'd have to do it all over again or just not do it because it's stupid.

Re: Dumbasses cause Netflix to issue warning

I commented last week. This was my comment:
im not gonna hate on you ashton. but i definitely have no respect for you. none. you continue to make harmful mistakes. then you promise to be better. but do you keep that promise? no, you don’t. instead you choose to keep making those mistakes. and then you expect most of us to forgive & forget. heck, no. i don’t give 3 craps if you are dating my stan. dating my stan doesn’t give you permission to act like how you’re acting. you make fun of your so called “friend”, you make inappropriate remarks towards your girlfriend, you disrespect your girlfriend, you dance (in front of girls & other people) in a way you shouldn’t when you have a girlfriend, then you offend some of your girlfriends fandom by saying the “n” word multiple times. you can say or write your excuses. you can say or write ways that you’ll “be a better human”. but i WONT gain respect for you and i WONT forgive & forget and i most definitely WONT be naive & think that you’ll change. i don’t care what y’all say to me, it won’t change my opinion. and y’all can’t say “he’s a teenage boy” there are many teenage boys his age that don’t act like this. & i know not everyone’s the same but it still doesn’t give him permission to act the way he does in the public eye. i understand it’s hard but many people like him are being watched all the time. im not one to compare but take johnny or carson or someone. they don’t act like this. not that you’re reading this or care ashton, but I’ll never think of you as Kenzie’s boyfriend & I’ll never respect you. no one come at me, im simply stating my opinion. if you don’t like what i have said then keep scrolling & stop reading.

That's all? For me, it was more like two hours and four minutes! Yeah, I was somewhat disappointed after all the hype this flick has received.

Re: Dumbasses cause Netflix to issue warning

This is almost as stupid as the Kiki challenge. We live in a world of halfwits.

This could be temporary.

Re: Dumbasses cause Netflix to issue warning

Oooooo scary. People are going to share passwords no matter what . They can crack down on organized selling of passwords but trying to police the average customer selling or sharing their password is borderline impossible and will probably cost more to police than the money they lose on password sharing.
