  • Did Verizon Just Screw The Content Giants? [View article]
    Good comment; it comes down to incremental steps. This is a good step in the right direction.

    Many times consumers will tell you exactly what they want; companies just have to listen and figure out a way to do it before it becomes too late.

    I went through the new choices and I will say while it's a nice step; it has a long way to go; bundles are still "too tight" forcing me to stay with my current package. These bundles will need to get to the individual channel level at some point which would no doubt expose how worthless half of Disneys channel lineup is.

  • Apple's Music Strategy Looks Increasingly Risky [View article]
    ok, so your logic. Google doesn't break out numbers therefore no profit? Makes no sense whatsoever. Some people do comb over their financials and do release "guesses" on what each service is bringing in; it's not fact; but I really don't see youtube making zero money based on their model.

    Just looking at my very minor youtube channel that I run and the money I make says they are making money.

  • PC sales fall sharply in Q1 [View news story]
    Highly doubt that it applies to corporate versions. My point was that as a regular user; most will take a free upgrade especially with how much people disliked Win8.1

    Windows 10 is also expected to be free to windows 7 & 8 users so thats automatic adoption for many people. Ive been running the Win10 preview on an old laptop and it's definitely a better experience than 8.1.

    Umm, Windows 10 will essentially be a hosted OS with updates pushed as they are available. It's already happening. Steam, Origin, Adobe Cloud, Office 365..etc It's not really up for debate really.

    They don't even break it out; so tell me how you know youtube specifically doesn't make money? There are ads all through youtube and it's still the most popular video site on the entire internet.

    You have no idea what your talking about. Show me where Youtube makes no money? Lower than analyst random expectations? Maybe; no money? Not even close.

    Youtube made 1.5 bill in actual profit in 2013; it's not like it's gotten less popular.

    Hmm, buy a high margin demographic monster (Beats) or buy a low margin zero profit service? I'd rather do it myself left with that option.

    Spotify and Pandora make negative zero dollars!

    Doesn't T-mobile already do this with their Music Freedom program?

  • AmEx vows to appeal antitrust ruling [View news story]
    Your statement:

    "AXP costumers aren't Costco regulars"

    I highly doubt that is true; I'm at Costco about twice a month; i'm a regular as are many other people I know. And if it is true; where are your facts about it?

    Costco isn't for people without money; it's for people who have enough money to pay a membership and then use only cash (debit cards) to buy stuff that's the complete opposite of your statement.

  • Apple patent infringement suits keep coming [View news story]
    I hate this saying. People who purposely avoid their civic duty are smarter than the people who aren't liars? At least the people on the jury will be honest.

    If they make a tiered system then guess what? You select the lowest tier without a lot of data and don't use netflix. It's not hard to understand if you really want to.
