If you have a Netflix account, you may have received an email from them much like the one below, advising you that the rate increase that they announced some time ago is about to go into effect.

Facebook’s IPO price opened at $38.00 per share, and by the close of the market on Monday, it had dipped down to $34.03, a decline of 10.99%.
Netflix has announced that they are raising their rates, effective for new customers immediately, while the new fees for existing customers will be effective September 1st. The rate hike is said to be necessary to reflect the increased cost of doing business, particularly with respect to postage rates for mailing DVDs.
