But we don't have to tear down the world and rebuild in this instance.

The roads are already there. The fossil fuel stations are already there, and the electric stations are being built now. The factories that make the bulk of the hardware are already there. All that's left is to replace the vehicles themselves, and that can be done piecemeal. Hell, some people trade up to the newest model car every year.

Yes, maybe we could consolidate them all into some sort of bundle. Perhaps with differently priced tiers; cheaper tiers get access to less content than more expensive tiers. Why, with this model, you could even have some less popular services subsidized by the purchase of more popular services.

Thank God we've finally cut the cord!

I used Opera for nearly 10 years, but they stripped out a ton of features with their newer versions.

I've started to use Vivaldi. It's only in tech preview, but it's relatively stable. I wouldn't yet recommend it for day to day use, but the team behind it is the old Opera team, and they seem to be focused on rebuilding that old functionality (the side panel has bookmarks, notes, contacts, downloads, with mail to come).

As a die-hard Opera fan, it's a return to form that I'm really enjoying.

They have to think happy thoughts and say happy things because once displeased, the monster can wish them into a cornfield or change them into a grotesque, walking horror. This particular monster can read minds, you see. He knows every thought, he can feel every emotion. Oh yes, I did forget something, didn't I? I forgot to introduce you to the monster. This is the monster. His name is Anthony Fremont. He's six years old, with a cute little-boy face and blue, guileless eyes. But when those eyes look at you, you'd better start thinking happy thoughts, because the mind behind them is absolutely in charge. This is the Twilight Zone.
