How would everyone react to being told that when you sign up with Comcast your mouse would be locked to Comcast, and when you moved to a city that only Charter Communications was availabe you would have to buy a new mouse? It is your hardware and your property. Almost all the carriers charge $10 for a Sim card. Plus you have to go to them to get it. Is your time not worth anything? Even if you are told upfront that if you sign up with a carrier your sim will be restricted,...
Maybe the decline is from the fact that artists don't make any money selling music anymore. Touring is the only way. When you go on tour everyone wants to hear the past and not have new music introduced. Where is the incentive to make new music that is your best work?

Do you have a large family or can you just not help yourself? 
What?, and miss all the fun!
So this is what pent up demand looks like.
Just sitting here thinking too bad I don't have $4K I don't know what to do with.
Walk into any mall in the United States and stop people at random and tell them this is happening and they won't have a clue what you are talking about. I am still amazed at how many times I am behind someone in line who is paying with exact change, digging around in their pocket or purse for that last penny. People in general are not very sophisticated when it comes to technology. I remember talking about smart cards back in the late 80's. Where are they now. Give a...
