I have options. I have three competing cable companies as well as independents. These rent bandwidth from the cable companies but under government regulation so they rent at competitive rates and they have package design autonomy. Personally I think broadband should be a service like roads, 'free' to all covered by taxes. We'd still be held to ransom by the content owners but I prefer that to cable middle-men.
Me too. I have always said that chord cutting will not save money for the average user, but I am also interested in some sort f comparison. I am thinking it might even cost more in the end. At the moment I get a lot of stuff from Netflix and anything I have a need to watch 'immediately' I'll buy from iTunes (or rent in the case of movies).It looks to me as if the Showtime deal (et al) are just like mini cable deals - you pay a subscription for a bundle and only end up...
It is more like the color of what would come back up after a couple of those glasses. Euech!
OK, thanks, I just assumed (Google, and all). I am trying to point my kids towards Apple Music (family plan), but they are resistant to change. The way they listen to music is VERY different than older (20 and up), folks do. I despair.
Not arguing with that (though I am sure he'd be offended by your suggestion he might be playing down at the local pub or bar , but the same can be said of many past greats. I have no idea what his popularity is or what the demand for his music is anymore.

How is it that Youtube and the other services that ride on its back can stream and cache music unfettered?
Who cares? The minute apple starts listening to those people is when the end begins.
But this is not a personal soapbox. Apple has clearly stated that it is an inclusive non-discriminatory organization. Apple believes in diversity. So for Apple to officially support the LGBT community is par for the course.
But surely the resurgence of Vinyl is a fashion thing. I won't argue that vinyl does not produce a warmer fuller sound because I simply don't know. I once had a teacher who swore by his vinyl. He was a real audiophile with a dedicated room in his house. The thing is - the cartridge on his record player arm alone cost £ 700.-, and that was quite some time ago. I am not sure I ever owned an entire stereo costing that much. I loved albums, don't get me wrong. I also loved...
