 I do have an unlimited plan, and use a moderate amount of data.  It's been more lately, but I could live with 6GB...maybe even 3.  As for the rest of analysis, we each forgot something.  I left out the activation/upgrade fee of $40 (or $38...whatever).  That brings my current monthly cost to around $88.  However, you left out the sale of the old phone, which nets me around $150.  I think I actually got $180 for my iPhone 5.     We're getting into reality now, because my...
 I used the number from the website for the NEXT plan.      I just showed that wasn't true, especially when you sell your old phone.    But this is what you're not getting...a 24 month plan is not a 24 month plan.  The phone is not paid off in 24 months (or 12, or 18 for that matter).   OK.  
 Exactly.  As others have noted, the 12/18/24 is a lie.  That's the contract term, not the full payoff.  It's like balloon financing.  If AT&T mandates this, am 100% certain to switch back to Verizon or to another carrier.   Consider the math.  In the current model, I buy a $300 subsidized phone every two years.  I then sell my old phone for around $150.  Given that I got my first iPhone in 2008, I've been doing this upgrade model for 5 years now--since 2010.  As things...
 It's worse than that, because you don't really have unlimited data.  I am grandfathered as well, and have received throttling warnings from time to time.  I don't understand how something can be "unlimited" but then get reduced in speed up to 95% when a LIMIT is reached.  The thing is I could see the case for AT&T not having to grandfather anyone, but I suppose they believe they'll get sued and/or nailed by the Feds.  In researching it, it appears it was the original...
Haven't found a merchant who accepts it yet.
Well, that about seals it: No MBP for me until next cycle.
 I agree with some of that, actually.  My main point was to ask you to explain your view of military actions in general.  The part of about war profiteering in Iraq and Afghanistan and unidentified people "close to the administration" is pretty far out there.  Even if people "close to the administration" ended up making money, you'd have to show these decisions were undertaken for that purpose.  Good luck with that.  And by the way, did anyone close to the Clinton...
 If that's your position, you've got a problem with every Democrat as well.  And yes, we need to look at history to make informed decisions.  However, this works both ways, tonton.  If creating a power vacuum is bad, then allowing it to get stronger by precipitously withdrawing troops for political reasons is bad.  If not making new enemies is the goal, then allowing ISIS to run rampant must be stopped.  If diplomacy is wonderful, then perhaps we should have earnestly...
I was the Apple Store King of Prussia (PA) yesterday.  When the Watch was released, they had a table on the side with some demos.  They now have a full display case front and center as you walk in with perhaps 24 or more combinations of watches and bands.  I'd say in-store availability will be soon.  
 Interestingly, I always turn off tap to click on my notebooks.  I like the physical click, but I really want a separate button.
