exactly. Of course with all other industries its about holding control as long as possible. Technically everything you do on your phone (smart or not) is nothing but data usage. your voice already uses a form of voip. not ethernet based but it is just data. the migration to data only plans is inevitable but I expect to see the phone companies fight it as long as possible.

Laptop 13-17" with more than double the power $300-$800. Screw a 7-10" netbook and tablets with fairly limited function. I'll spend the extra $100 for the extra 3gb ram bigger HDD, better processor and video card. I never understood paying more for less.

Honestly, Bloatware sucks but at the same time it is a major source of revenue for them which in turn lowers prices. First thing I do when I get a new machine is wipe it out and start with a fresh OS install. Drivers from the MFG site and boom good to go no hours of uninstalling. My HP DV7 decent machine only cost $400. 2.2Ghz, 500GB, 4Gb Ram, 17.3 screen. Bloatware has its use. However I do agree for the Average user it causes a lot of trouble.
