Local cable company upped speed several times to now 50Mbits for basically same $50/month with no limits, but I don't use that capacity. (Don't even have the right modem.) A gig is not necessary for even pretty good quality streaming, let alone for (yuck) Facebook, and such.
I guess you're right.. Just like we don't need more than 640KB of RAM either.
Hardly anyone wants that speed except pirates! Here at Techdirt, the pirato-geeks* assume their greed to download free content is universal, but it ain't.
What it definitely IS home to is a couple of annoying industry shills who have little to no reading comprehension and can't image anything outside the fucked up, out of touch, greedy cunt faced corporate box they live in.
I have read every comment in this thread hoping AC would actually give us a link to his creations. For some reason there is a insy little bit of me that hopes he is a real musician, albeit obviously a rather deluded one. I actually feel a bit sad that he didnt. Weird.
