I think the lying is intentional. The ISPs help create the broadband maps and increase/fudge the coverage area so the government doesnt give them shit....and yes they do include 4G which they should not because it royally sucks and is very expensive (high price and capped).

Enhanced infrastructure is the grease that allows the wheels to turn easily for the benefit of all. Enterprise will continue without infrastructure. Everyone has derived their benefit from government created infrastructure allowing us to spend our time arguing about it instead of toiling away wasting time on braving the terrain to trade goods. Obama's statements were absolutely insane and inane. Enterprise built the infrastructure...period. Without enterprise the government is weak and ineffectual. Government is a produces nothing.

It is not eye candy it is aesthetics. One of the main reasons people paint their walls and decorate their they don't subconsciously make themselves miserable and detract from their creativity and quality of life. It is utility with more than physical purpose. Crawl out of your mom's basement for a while and visit the homes of good people...perhaps drive something a little better than an econobox and experience inspiration.

Windows 8 (the tiles UI) is by far the best UI available these days. Microsoft hit the nail on the head with their new design. From the first day I used a Windows Phone it flowed perfectly and was very easy to use without losing any power and I found myself missing it after moving to an S5. Anyone who thinks the new IE interface or Microsoft's tiles UI is ugly or less of a UI than the alternatives is just a hater. Something about the cleanliness makes me feel like I have more power for some reason. However, Microsoft did abandon accessibility with thier new UI and I wonder why thye do not have a high contrast theme for Office 365--that is very annoying to me and a show stopper for people with bad eyes.

Simplicity does not precede complexity, but follows it.
