And these companies then turn around and cry to the government & public about being broke when they are still setting sale records with massive revenue
The fact that they think going around to bars for such a little amount is a good idea shows how utterly clueless they are top to bottom
Wouldn't be surprised if Vitter was the idiot.
He got caught with hookers awhile back after praising himself as the perfect Catholic during election time
Same ole for the GOP
Hypocrites and general morons
Just goes to show what utter scumbags we have in todays society. This guy will forever have his name on the internet as a deep-seeded douchebag. Good job.
Much like torture, we want other countries to not touch our military, have completely free internet, etc....yet we can do whatever we want
We redefine hypocrisy
I get so annoyed at this entire conversation because it is so insanely laughable hearing these Hollywood people discuss proper prices for downloading materials
Rather than having legitimate prices for movies/music, they love gauging consumers then playing stupid when consumers find cheap or free ways of getting the same material
It is basically the GOP's way of scaring those who legitimately tried to get answers into companies that support Republicans
I am sure numerous citizens will be outed and/or mocked for legitimate requests into heavily-funded GOP companies
I am a big fan of reading the NYT but their idea of paying near $20 a month is so damn laughable that I am not sure where to start.
If they were smart, they would start very low and build up as they get users
They will have little to no traffic for such a ridiculous high
So basically we want our men to NEVER be tortured b/c that is wrong and shows how TERRIBLE those people are
But of course we can do everything b/c that is justified and we are civilized
The answer is quite clear...they want the ability to tap into everyone so they can FIND people doing things wrong.
They want to stay a step ahead of everyone and be able to see what EVERYONE is doing at all times
It should scare the entire country
You read stories like this and wish the guy could get money for a product HE MADE and wants to be compensated for....which seems quite reasonable
Then you read stories about companies suing grandmothers for 10 songs and wish they would go bankrupt
Have there been bombshells? Sure
Have their been life-changing information leaked that puts us in immediate danger and/or will put MASSIVE changes into effect immediately for the US? No...I am still waiting on anything.
It is obvious that music people are outraged that CD sales have not gone UP for years now. They also HATE that single songs can be bought rather than CD's
They want to find any way possible to get MORE money so blaming anyone and everyone seems to be their way
It is funny to hear so many people with no kids tell parents/kids what they should do yet few if any other parents agree with them....including people who felt one way w/o kids then turned around when they had kids and felt the other way
I hate Drudge but OMG, HE USED A PICTURE?
Huh? Suing over that?
Do papers realize the money they are wasting on these idiotic suits that will do NOTHING in the long run?
Schools are seeing their funding get slashed left and right and are seeing donations nose-dive in these economic times
And these MPAA morons expect schools to take funds out of their already thin budget to act and monitor copyright issues?
The 2gb top data plan by AT&T is utter embarrassing
It is laughably low and more and more people are hitting it.
The fact that AT&T made it so low is telling that they WANT more people to hit it so they can bask in many people getting penalties thus more money for them
I will be switching out of AT&T soon unless they raise their cap
Paywalls in themselves are not ALL going to fail
The problem is companies have not figured out that they need to offer ORIGINAL content at a small price to build a fan base.
These idiots continue putting walls up with little original materials, bad sites, and high prices. It is an absolute joke.
I pay for a site that gives me specific news about a specific topic. I enjoy it and have no problem paying the price that I do.
I do NOT use my iPad as my main connection yet I come across my 2gb cap EVERY MONTH
How? I am a big news apps person, I do email daily at work (since I have no wifi at work), and I may browse some sites or play some music
THAT is how I hit my cap
What a joke
Broadband is right on and it is sickening.
The iPad being given TOPS 2gb as the ceiling use per month is an absolute JOKE and shows how AT&T and others want to continue FORCING people to not use much while ENCOURAGING more to use it
Why? So more can hit the caps and hit penalties
2gb cap....what a freakin joke
I hit that cap almost monthly and I don't watch Netflix, etc....I am FAR from a "heavy user"
What we have learned the last 10 years is that whenever a terrorism attacks with a Republican in office, the terrorists are mad b/c of past Democratic actions
When a terrorist attack happens under Democratic rule, it is the Democrats problem for being "stupid"
When a terrorist attack doesn't happen under Democratic rule, it is the Republicans to praise for past actions
