1) They are no way targeted to my interests
Tell me when the next movie or book I may like
is coming out; where cheaper gas is, etc.
DONT tell me about "reality shows", alcohol, drugs,
lawyers, semi sleazy "chat lines", and vacations
in the bahamas!
2) They are repeated far too much
Sometimes three times within the same break!
At least do four versions, and don't run them back to
If everyone would cancel their contracts and hand back their devices when changes like this occur, the service providers would soon quit this foolishness.
As long as Service providers can depend on customers just complaining and continuing to pay them, they have no reason to stop gouging. They know that even if they lose a handful of customers, there are plenty more who will buy their misrepresentations.
If you don't like contract changes, ditch your phone, and tell the provider WHY. Leave your money in your pocket, and don't give it to corporate liars.
A suggestion; if you MUST make phone calls and can disconnect yourself from mobile internet, get a "pay as you go" phone from the local Walmart, and make do. Your wallet will thank you!
At this point, it doesn't matter if MegaUpload sues or not. The DOJ has accomplished their purpose... they totally disrupted MegaUpload and took it offline, and made their corporate (masters) sponsors happy.
One simple fact; most people dislike reruns. Commercials by definition are rerun more than ANY OTHER CONTENT on TV. How many times have you seen (and liked) a commercial when you first saw it? Yeah me too; there are some I thought were cute or clever or "wow I've never seen THAT before" the first time...but after the 50th time?... not so much.
Online streaming video sites that include commercials already disable FF & RW controls during the commercials.
Since so many people now have cameras attached to their TVs (kinect, etc) I can easily see a time in the future when if you leave the room or don't pay attention to the commercials, playback will pause until you _DO_ pay attention.
And if you try to get around this somehow, the media you WANT to watch simply won't be displayed at all.
