Except regardless of what you do, I would still expect you to not look at your phone while driving.

I would also send the rest of whatever I was going to say. How often do you read a text, decide you will respond to it later and then forget all about it. It's YOUR responsibility to drive legally. You aren't force to check your messages while driving. If it's that important or you just can't wait then you need to pull over.

What about someone who doesn't have constant internet access. Or those who want to play when the servers go down all day every Tuesday? How about trying to play a single player game with a ping over 1000ms, not because your connection is bad, but because their servers can't handle the traffic?

Still think it's not that big of a deal?

not that I don't agree with you, but part of the problem is the customers. people are idiots, which would be fine but they are also self entitled assholes about it. i've never worked in a call center but i have worked in a retail environment in the past and hated dealing with the phones for that very reason.

reading scripts for support type things is the devil though...

Exactly. Not that I would switch because I PREFER to do all of the administration myself, but there is a lot left to be desired from what they are offering and considering the price ranges, it's definitely not at a point where it would be worth it for your average users. Interesting take on things though.
