I apologize in advance if this actually was a tragedy, but my BS detector went off the charts with this one.
Looking at the current front page of IBtimes, they have stories of Lady Gaga's eating disorders, "Flesh eating drug turns skin to scales" and "Two-Year-Old Children Watching Online Porn, Shock Survey Finds."
I look to TD for legal/policy commentary and discussion, not color on SHOCKING REALLY TRUE EVENTS FROM REALLY FAR OFF PLACES REALLY! AND REALLY SHOCKING REALLY!!! AND SHOCKING TOO!!! REALLY!!!!!
I have an iPad and use it heavily, but only subscribe to the 250MB plan. In the US, free WiFi is widely available. LTE is a "plan B" for the rare cases where WiFi isn't available.
Like most tablet users, I mainly use it at work (over WiFi) and at home (over WiFi). When I'm out of home or office, I check email and occasionally browse or use maps. I suspect that 250MB/month will be perfectly fine for 80% or more of the buyers.
