I have an 120" screen in my living room. My HTPC is connected to the 5.1 receiver and the projector. I have control over the sound, picture and play/pause.
If I wanted to see a movie in a theatre it would be more inconvenient than seeing it at home in my pyjamas or buck naked(Butt naked for the younger ones amongst you.).
But it's not $25, never mind $50, more inconvenient. At the most, I would be willing to pay double the movie theatre price, which around here is $8.
> I ran across a book on amazon the other day that was $25 for hardcover or $25 for kindle.
My girlfriend was asking why I was willing to spend "just as much" for a real book as for a e-book. I replied, "storage". There are many books in my library that I would GLADLY trade for an "e" version. Not all, mind you, but most.

.. as much as I like EVs, I like my current condo more. As of right now, there is no way for the couple hundred cars parked in my condo's underground to get charged. The changes to the building's electrical grid to make charging possible are absolutely cost prohibitive. So, no EV for me my neighbours and other millions of people in a similar situation.
Not everyone lives, or wants to live, in a detached house in the suburbia.
> Imagine going on a road trip where every hour and a half you stopped for an hour to charge your car.
To _ME_ this would be a definite plus. People like, for example, my father, would need therapy after such a trip.
