Exactly. I can notice the difference between 1080p and 4k, but said difference is so small that I'm not about to buy a new 60" TV and the coming HD-Bluray yet. Hell, people are just now really starting to even buy standard BluRay. I really doubt this will take off anytime soon. When it does and it makes sense then I'll upgrade. Right now 1080p on my 60" is a fantastic experience that I don't see being worth money to 'upgrade'.

Nobody forces you to use gmail or Facebook though. To you they are a free 'service' but they really aren't a service to you. That's just the carrot. You are the product they sell. Don't want them to have any information about you? Don't use them. I don't use Facebook for that very reason, and I use my gmail for innocuous things and as my spam catcher account. My choices.

Want your email to be as private as possible? Stand up your own server or use a paid service that you think you can trust. Don't want Facebook using any data it collects on you? Great, me either! So don't use it.

Lend money to a bad debtor and he will hate you.
