In that function, you're only using Rx to schedule the retry and put it on another thread. A more interesting case would be to observe a click, activate a download, async await it with flatMap, show a progress while loading and execute some action when it's completed. Or load a list from the network or file, read a small part, tokenized it and process it while you continue to receive more data in the background.

Also you do not have to solve every single problem you can solve with rx in rx. If there is nothing to do async, just go with a regular list or iterator and loop over it.
