Then they could make the profit from somewhere else, e.g. subsidizing them like mobile phones are, with their data plans and all...

> PS: What does "PD" mean?
"PD" means Postdata, from Latin "post datum" or "after date", and was a way to add some more information after a written letter, since you could not modify a message written with ink or typewriter. In electronic communications like email this is not necessary, so it's recommended to add a "PS", or "Postscript", "after the written".
PS: how convenient you asking what PD means in your PS... oh, wait!
