Verizon's unlimited 3G meant I could play Pandora through my phone while I was driving without worrying about data caps.
My contract is up anyhow and I need to trim down expenses. I have the HTC Droid Incredible, which is a nifty enough little phone. All I really need is texting, email, and maybe some minimum amount of minutes. A camera on it would be convenient. I really don't want to move from Verizon because I know their coverage is solid, but I don't want to reward their greedy data tier plan behavior. Any recommendations?
My grandfather recorded a TV show that had John Stossel as the TV host. The whole thing was about property ownership being awesome and public property just ending up with the tragedy of the commons. It even went so far as to say that conservation of wild animals is better if someone owns them for profit, offering the example of some park raising a protected buffalo herd and selling tickets every year for people to come watch them get herded across part of the park. It was interesting, but I couldn't watch more than half of the show as I got tired of the bullshit it contained.
not disputing it. By asserting that profit margins are thin (so the incentive to take risks is lower), that media companies are messy businesses (apparently, he believes organized media output is a myth), and that the corporations listed are so large that controlling all departments is a tall order, he doesn't seem to think the consolidation is anything to worry about. His fact checking is minimal, mostly constrained to making fun of some math gone wrong and telling everyone that his bullshit detector is going off. The infographic itself is pretty neat, but the post criticizing is hardly worth reading, much less linking.
