[ NNSquad ] Re: U.S. broadband adoption hits 7-year low

This reminds me of PC in 1995 when I observed that anyone buying a PC

provided a new reason and it also helped that Windows 95 made the PC far
more usable. (Apple was asleep at that point).


If you don't have "broadband" by now what reason would you suddenly discover
to get it. This is why I point out that we need to think about connectivity

    [ I believe that the above qualifies as somewhat condescending
      also.  I sense something of a worrisome disconnect from the
      real world of ordinary consumers (and their concerns).  Sorry
      about that, Bob.
