Good morning everyone. I am not sure if you heard the 2 big stories that broke Monday morning: Netflix was planning on removing the TV show “Friends” from their service beginning January 1 and American Express announced BIG changes to the American Express Business Platinum Charge Card. Not surprising, Netflix users freaked out and started complaining on Facebook and Twitter. Here are a few complaints from this USA Today article. After a few hours, Netflix reversed course and granted users’ wishes: “Friends” would be on Netflix through 2019. That’s one win for the little guys! But what about the second big story from Monday?
