WE used to have utilities overrun by the state and federal system.. NOW... Electric.. GAS.. are PRIVATE Companies..ON THE STOCK MARKET..which means they need to make a PROFIT..
How does this compare with CABLE/SAT?? TONS of regulations, and a PUC(public utility counsel) to COMPLAIN TO.. You can even complain to DOT(department of transportation) if you ROADS arnt being fixed..
What does a Corporation want.. DO IT ONE TIME...and charge you every month, FOREVER.. (dont ask me about those 40+ year old telephone poles)
You DO NEED to understand 1 thing..THE MAIN ISP is only responsible to the LAST MILE...the cables run around your town/city.. The interconnections BETWEEN cities and towns..CAN be/MOST TIME...BELONGS TO ANOTHER COMPANY..
Just because 1 company is SMARTER then another, does NOT mean a company has an UNFAIR advantage..
Look at the OLD stores.. NOT upgraded, no longer compete.. MOST are groups of Stores, all owned by 1 company..(macy's to TJ Max) GET OUT of the high COST areas..move to the Lower cost sections of towns.. DONT sit next to your competition IN THE MALL. GET OUT of the DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM IN THE USA..GO DIRECT.. (running products threw 2-3 companies BEFORE it gets to a store ONLY ADD's COST)(ask walmart)
How many years does it take, to figure out that IF' you dont let kids play on your computer, there are less problems.. That the easiest way to protect yourself from Virus and bots and PAYING SOMEONE TO CLEAN your computer at $50 per hour...is abit of protection..
WHY is there a market for.. Anti virus.(kasperky,avast,..) Anti Bot.(spybot,adaware,..) Malware removal.(kasperky,..) SYSTEM cleaners that get rid of history, Cache files, and Garbage gathered on the net?(Ccleaner,...) and recovery programs for windows AFTER some Idiot program DOES SOMETHING it shouldnt have..
NOW who has done any of this. It ranges from MS, and a script in a music program. to a Game maker that installed DRM that Corrupted a personal machine.
Why in HELL do we want/need/USE anything around to protect our computers??? Could blame for NOT sand boxing EVERYTHING that is used under windows. NOT protecting Windows itself, not letting ANY program augment or change the system files.. Its just that Spending 6+ hours to reinstall WINDOWS, and any other files you want..to get BACK to where you were...IS A PAIN..
I would LOVE a Browser that would TAG, every script installed on my computer, with a TAG of where IT CAME FROM...so that I could SUE the site that installed it.. 1 Court case WIN, would REALLY shut this down fast..
Understand this? I do.. The idea that the NET should be unencrypted.. The net should NOT require people to PROTECT themselves.. That Bots, and Malware, should not be around.. That Everyone and every corp should be truthful and Honest.
ANYONE want to run around, in real life, with his ID, and CC exposed to ANYONE?? WOW, lets just publish all the SS#, with names and addresses..
HOW about you r picture on a bus going thru TOWN.. How about everry business you PASS.. Every Pizza Spinning sign.. JUST CAUSE your picture is on the bus, dont mean the Passengers ON THE BUS have to pay for the Adverts you are passing by..
