If Netflix CEO Reed Hastings was running for office, this would be the time to call him a flip-flopper. After last month's announcement that Netflix would split into two companies -- Netflix for online streaming and Qwikster for DVD-by-mail service -- Hastings said on Monday morning that those plans have been scraped. "It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs," said Hastings in a statement on the Netflix blog. "This means no change: one website, one account, one password... in other words, no Qwikster." Certainly @qwikster must be heartbroken.
