From the article:
Customers can get an Apple TV included with 3 months pre-paid of any DIRECTV NOW package.
The base 32GB Apple TV is currently $149. Looking at it another way, AT&T will sell you an Apple TV at a $44 discount and throw in three free months of live TV programming. That's actually a sweet deal.
PS: This is the first and probably only time you'll hear me describe anything from AT&T as being a decent value.
PPS: In before "apple tv sucks fanboyz lol etc". I have an Apple TV and I like it. You may prefer something else. Yay, here's your cookie. But if you were thinking about buying an Apple TV for Christmas, here's a $44 coupon off.
all of which are older than 6 years old, and running OS's that are more than 6 years old

Oh, get over yourself. I ride a bus to work every day. I don't think it's special-snowflakeism to want to read the news while we're trudging along for half an hour. And before your start in with neo-Luddite "ever heard of a book", have you ever tried reading long-form text on public transit? This situation is practically what Twitter and News.app was invented for.
You'd think that someone who went to three major dental schools would know better.
Did the first two not take?
Or - and I know this is crazy - actually use that cloud thing the kids are talking about.
It doesn't have to be someone else's. I have a home NAS (which is solidly in the category of "things people who would need a MacBook Pro would likely benefit from having anyway"). It stores all our ripped CDs and DVDs, and when I'm at home I can play all of those directly off the network share. If I'm traveling, I can download the stuff I want to take with me. If I forget something, I can download it from my NAS while I'm on the road.
So basically my laptop has the properties you're describing: I can be home plugged in to power and with several TB of fast local network storage, or I can be traveling with a lightweight laptop without all the things I don't need when I'm not in my living room.
and now he thinks I am part of the God denying conspiracy.
"I hadn't been, dumbass, but now I'm strongly considering it."
1. They do.
2. Many of these sites are for sharing kiddie porn. You know like Reddit, YouTube, and Blogs are for sharing things. The consumers are often the creators.
3. " It's rather like penalizing people who drink poisoned water rather than finding the poisoners." Really? These people are going to a tor dark web site called the playpen and you are trying to paint them as victims? How about this instead, "it is like penalizing people that pay people to sexually abuse children for there entertainment".... Yea I got no problem with this.
It takes more than half that time for many people to become fully engaged in a complex task
That's debatable. It helps a lot if you have a short description of what you're trying to accomplish. Now, I wouldn't want to write a novel or an architecture document that way, but it's great for knocking out a dozen well-defined chores.
