All right. So, The Wall Street Journal dropped a bomb last night. But the paper has a pay wall. So, we can't cite reporting from them. Though we can cite reaction from other media outlets who reported on their reporting, right? Right. So, here goes: Apple and Comcast are thinking about turning their friendship into something romantic. Go ahead, Jason D. O'Grady of ZDNet ...

Whew. How about that ridiculously long "House of Cards" recap from the other day?! That thing was a doozy! And now, for our next (hopefully shorter) trick ... ... let's talk about Comcast.
