Do you remember the daily show back when it was run by Craig Kilborn?
That's probably the goal, the new MBA generation from the baby boomers....
Sun Microsystems was madly hiring MBA's after the dot-com-bust to save the company.
Seriously? Who writes this stuff?
I live in Canada (near the border), I have P.O. Box on the U.S. side and I have a bank account in a U.S. bank. I had no trouble opening it, and I use it to pay for many purchases I make from the U.S. (I can often get much better travel deals through sites like Priceline when I use a credit card with a U.S. billing address.)
So, I don't know what difficulty you're alluding to.
Interesting statement considering that U.S. banks don't allow accounts to be set up with PO Box addresses.
It doesn't need to be. It's still a history lesson. Not many young people would know that in the past you'd actually call a library to ask them questions. Heck, I'm 30 and I would have never considered calling them!
Of course only before the 70s did they actually answer the phone. Then came the tape players that just played a recording of the library hours.

And 15 years ago I bought a massive 2GB drive for $350.
4 years ago I bought a few 2TB drives for $69 each.. Then the prices sky rocketed and still haven't come back down to that price.

The option is given when you set up a device for iMessage. It explicitly asks how you want to be contacted. By number, by email(s)/AppleIDs, or all of the above
It does not. It only asks if you want to use OTHER ids that you have set up. Your phone number becoming an id isn't optional.
You can, just go into the imessage settings. In fact you are specifically asked if you want to add your phone number to imessage when you set up your phone.
Your phone number is used to create an ID immediately when you turn on iMessage. You have no choice in the matter.
