My money is on door #2.
What I gathered from this article is that it is desireable in a coporate setting to be extroverted. Extroverts are rewarded, introverts are pocket-protector wearing peons.
No wonder everyone hates management.
The no-contract plans do not allow voicemail forwarding - so if you currently use YouMail or an equivalent, you will be SOL by using T-Mobile.
I run several flavors of Linux at home and work and am disappointed that Netflix doesn't work natively under Linux. Rather than fudging around with a virtual machine or trying to get things working under Wine, I walked into my local electronics store and paid $70 for a nice blu-ray, internet enabled player.

What do you recommend be done with these billions of people in the coming decades?

Automation is making human labor irrelevant, regardless of union participation.
US property managers, landlords, real estate holding companies, grocers, farmers, and other interests and providers decide to drastically cut costs of everything they manage, manfuacture or otherwise provide.
Until then, quit complaining about Americans with large wages and outrageous benefits. That is a gross stereotype which is simply not true for the vast majority of American workers (of those who actually have jobs, no thanks to outsourcing in India and elsewhere).
This could and should have been prevented by installing Linux - which is free - on all student and faculty/staff computers. With education costs soaring, going with the name brand (which is also less secure) is no longer an excuse.
