Sorry, but companies making huge profits don't bother me. I also don't care how they spend their money.
I'm also unsure about what you're advocating. Are you calling for less government intervention via funding and more intervention via profit regulation?
And, yeah, I rely on several drugs that both extend and maintain a quality of life for me. So while you're stifling your vomit and expressing your rage, I'm thanking the pharma companies for the drugs they've brought to market.
People do still watch broadcast TV. It might be an unthinkable concept in the tech community, but I'd be willing to bet that there are more people watching broadcast TV than there are streaming to high bandwidth internet devices.
