Until we quite artificially limiting supply its all a farce. Where is my fiber to the premise? why are my uploads still capped? Why can't i watch TV over the internet? Why are we still years behind other nations that don't put preserving corporate residual income off artificially limiting supply ahead of consumer demand and functionality?
I'm glad someone is getting rich off my needs

Bah humbug? I thought they were rather large numbers of people, which means, at the very least, more opportunity for advertising, and more opportunity for sales.
No wonder the stocks of the big players were up.

Well, I'm just as happy about advertising revenue as anyone else but I'm not one to forget the consumer side of things either.
For i could reach a much bigger audience, generate more revenue and broaden my services if other companies weren't out there artificially limiting my capacity to do so.
