The only people saying they would sign up are Anonymous Cowards here. I don't think that's true. I'm a happy Google Fiber subscriber, but every time I talk about how awesome it is, I get downvoted to oblivion. My theory is that most people just hate the idea of Google Fiber. Google's probably seeing the reaction from the masses too and have come to the same conclusion.

I'm not sure where you are financially, but it looks like you have an opportunity to get a $2640 raise here. And unlike other raises, the government won't get a cut. If cable is important, consider PlayStation view. By switching to the $30 plan (which is very good), you can save $2280. That's enough to pay for the PS4 you'll need for Vue several times over.

I know, why would I want to play original titles with gorgeous graphics like Splatoon!, Pikmin 3, Super Mario 3D World, when I can play buggy 3rd party "bald space marine" FPSs in glorious next gen brown? I hate it when companies push the envelope in creativity, fun, and challenge too.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to my "Fischer Price" games like "Fire Emblem: Fates".

Why would I choose performance over the games I want to play?

I mean given the choice of playing some generic "gritty" arena shooter or the highly innovative game "Splatoon", I would choose "Splatoon". It performs good enough and the graphics look pretty slick. I don't need to see an inkling's nose hair with realistic nose hair physics to enjoy the game. In fact I prefer to not be in the uncanny valley that caused the hardcore PC games of yesterday to age so poorly while the console games still look pretty good today.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some "Fire Emblem: Fates" to play on my super low res 3DS.
