its distribution. to get a signal around the country, without installing 10,000 Towers and power locations to send a signal.
THIS SAVE THEM MONEY..TONS OF MONEY.
Promise of CABLE, were LESS commercials, MORE SHOWS.. NEVER HAPPENED.
PROBLEM of CABLE/SAT..NATIONAL commercials, its hard to send Location specific Commercials. Your local bike shop cant send you a commercial. So you end up with Adverts for locations and shops that MAY(probably arnt) near you. Considering that over 3/4 of the nations is considered RURAL/Farming.
So, if you are going to watch 10-15 minutes of commercials EVERY HOUR, why are you paying for it?
When cable started, you got BASIC CABLE $20, then added packages $10 each...NOW, you pay for ESPN even if you dont watch it.. you pay for religious channels you may not want..You pay for SALES channels(even tho they SEEM to be free..You pay for music, Alt-language(Spanish/other)channels..And TONS of stuff that you Dont/wont watch..
WHY pay for something you DONT WANT to watch?
If you look at the Full listings, MOST(almost all) people watch LESS then 20 channels. And that is a HIGH selection. Many only watch about 10.
But, for all the infrastructure NEEDED to send a signal to EVERYONE in the USA.. wouldnt you think CABLE/SAT would be cheap?
LET them setup Antenna's AROUND the country to get your advertising dollar. It will make TONS of jobs. Forget CABLE/SAt until they drop the prices.
I wouldnt mind $20 per month, for ALL the channels..
So, we arnt sending out IP to other nations so they can Build them Cheap, and send them back 'for sale' to US??
Hmm, sounds weird..
Do we send letters and NDA agreements to those companies in OTHER countries, AND ASK them not to share our DATA on products we WANT them to make??
Then 'as the company' why not just copy and send it to a Alternate, to make the product themselves...CHEAPER.
HOw many APPLE clones are there in China and the middle east..>? TONS. Why arent they HERE?? we have ANTI-COMPETITION LAWS/CONTRACTS..
1. MS to make a NEW common driver for mouse/trackball. Im tired of OVERLAYS that arnt compressed.
2. a NEW trackball. NONE of the Makers have improved on what was made 10 years ago.. They have gone WILD on the mouse, and forgotten the trackball.
NOW if they would replace the BALL with a glide point, or track pad that could do alot. Then add a few buttons on the side to change its use and configuration..
1. 5x5 keypad
2. 10 key input
3. quick keys
I know TONS of people that would buy it..
PS..I HATE GESTURES..
Think about HOW to keep secrets..
Do you make much of it PUBLIC? as in the meeting?
We need to find the MAIN group.
The ones we are seeing are only the Enterouge(sp) the FOREST, that is hiding the trees.
Think about it..the ones we see..arnt the ones deciding WHAT is to be done.
We need the NAMEs of the idiots in the background. WE need to MAKE them HEAR US..OR make/show them the PATH to doing things RIGHT.
its not piracy they HATE..
its installing enough POWER/resources and TIME to be able to give music to Everyone..
They dont get it, cant get it, and dont WANT TO PAY for it..
I was born and raised in a small town..
Can you GUESS what they had for music?? COUNTRY..JUST COUNTRY and a few extra..
the CORP likes to pigeon HOLE things so they KNOW what to send where..
NOW with the internet...you can SAMPLE Everything and decide what you like.
The CORPS business is to Make NEW singers rich..How can they do they if you buy OLD music..
SAME with radio..
What we dont like?? is easy.
REPETITIVE MUSIC..2-4 hour and REPEAT isnt a good thing.
Find a dedicated radio channel, ALL country/classic?/Classical..and they tend to be commercial based.
ADD to the list..
The common person has no way to change/augment the format..
DOES my player, PLAY what is given by the corps.
DRM movies DONT run on many things, and security has changed over the years.
Does it RUN on my TV? do I need something to RUN it on my TV.. HOW the @#$@#$ do I hook this up?
DEFINE PIRACY. Im not making money from this. Im adding to my collection. This is demonstrated by the 'Dr. Who", collection and missing 200(?) episodes.. The BBC had to wonder the world to find COPIES that had been saved ON TAPE.
HOw long ago have the Social groups and activities in local areas, GONE AWAY??
Even in small towns, there USED to be tons of activities going on..NOW??
PS.. they didnt COST ANYTHING..
Are we isolating ourselves??
All the news and ABUSE of NEWS? does it scare us that THINGS HAPPEN. That a Church leader molested a child? That a school was shot up??(get better doors, and metal detectors)
HAVE the lawyers scared off the PARENTS from letting the kids go to the PARK, and they MIGHT get hurt??
This is getting as bad as the OLD halloween scare from the 70's,,
The SMARTER the phone, the Dumber the person using it..
You need to PROTECT your data, its a STUPID computer in your hands..Virus/bots and the WHOLE thing.. NOW you want to add another BUG??
Ever wonder why they use Throw away phones on TV shows?? DUMB phones cant tell on you.. iF YOU WANT TO SWAP SECRETS, WHY are you using a PHONE?
ANYONE here understand the word WIRELESS, and the problems associated with it??
Yes, type on that Nice wireless keyboard, and Anyone within 30 feet can READ IT, with the right program.. NO security needed.
BEFORE they installed LINK security, you could have 4+ people all listening on a wireless headsets to your Wireless BT, Music device..(RIAA didnt like that)
Anyone read the story about Home depot and the registers, all wireless and NOT ENCRYPTED??(they had fun with that)
What these guys WANT, is that Each phone sends a NOTE, of the phones NUMBER/ID..the rest of the data can already be read, but they CANT tell who is saying WHAT. Then ADD to it the GPS data of the phone and you can track ANYONE..
I hope you all know that the USA is a closed market..
An OUTSIDE company Can not Bring to the USA any products without going through 1 of the FEW major corps, Adding TAXES(tariff) and Tons of overhead to the price of the product..Ask Toyota, Nisan, and others..WHY they moved to the USA..
WE are NOT an open market. so this question is invalid.
I would LOVE to have products come from OTHER companies outside the USA..to be marketed at a FAIR PRICE..
Lets say that the Company that MAKES the IPOD, brings in a product at 25% over cost to the USA..APPLE would PISS their pants. An Ipod product at That needs NO contract, and sells at 1/2 the price(or cheaper) then what you are NOW paying??
How would you like to compete with Clothing prices at 40% off..Every Store would go NUTS with an open market.
How would all these people trying to regulate, LIKE their lives to be an open book?
REALLY how would they like their lives invaded..
Now for a better question. Wouldnt it be nice to FIND all the money that Corps ship out from the USA? without a Warrant? It would be fun to find this. If nothing else for blackmail and getting your 10% of it, BEFORe you reported it tot he gov.
