The Black Hole Of Monthly Bills

A comment from an article by gdgt about possible pricing on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet.

“I think you misunderestimate the willingness of people to exchange a growing share of their shrinking monthly income for the use of a product they hope will fill the hole in their lives created by our relentlessly consumption-driven culture. Cable TV, satellite TV, cable/DSL/fiber internet, WiFi plans, mobile voice plans, mobile data plans, text plans, tethering plans, mobile hotspot plans… the success of these and more has proven that most of us have never met a monthly charge we didn’t like.”
