(NASDAQ: NFLX) apparently spent the weekend trying to come up having a strategy to back down from the company’s latest announcement that it would split its company into a streaming-only service along with a DVD-by-mail service to be known as Qwikster. Client accounts, now unified under just the Netflix name, could be split to ensure that if a customer had each the streaming and also the DVD service, that unlucky soul would should handle two accounts and spend two expenses.
