Yup, exactly right. Seems like the author just learned the difference between value and cost and freaked out. Sure, value will go way down, but our current costs are so darn high and the cost reduction overall so significant, it will be worth the value loss in higher cost per channel. Really looking forward to this happening.

For reference, Android household here.

There haven't been many apps we've felt compelled to buy. I think we still have like $15-$16 of the $25 credit/rebate from Google when we bought the Nexus 7 back in '12 - Titanium Backup and Beyond Pod come to mind as apps I've purchased.

Other than that, I just haven't seen much of anything I need that I'd be willing to spend even 99 cents on. Also, you can get a free paid app everyday from Amazon. I have gotten some good ones from that, but I'd never pay for them otherwise.

I'm sure others will tell me why I'm mistaken, but this doesn't bother me so much, mainly because it doesn't surprise me.

Well, yeah.
