I'm eager to watch the sales of EA sports franchises dry up when people can't trade them back in...If this industry wants to shoot itself in the foot, let them.
All the idiocy about how the lack of used games will cause price cuts is dumb. There's people who complain about people who use Steam don't buy new games when they're released because they wait for the price cut.
The industry needs to be taken out back and beaten.
Google has said they don't view this as business. It's a move that is supposed to put pressure on the US to catch up broadband speeds. However, if they roll it out in enough cities, they may just change their minds.
If the telcos want to stop Google, they could, *gasp* roll out higher speeds before Google does it.
