VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
This story was run a couple weeks ago. We all blasted the idiot writer for saying having land lines, desk top computers, etc., was wasting money. So it appears, msnbc merely deleted all the comments talking about the stupidity of the child who wrote the article, then reposted the same stupid article thinking they would get a different result. But desk tops and land lines are still needed to run businesses, communicate in hurricane prone areas, operate programs that a little 'tablet toy' can't handle, etc. So,
Sorry msnbc, your writers stupidity is STILL stupidity.
I've got a couple of cell phones in my cars, for emergency use only !
Will definitely keep my home landline.
Same old MSN BS.
Why don't they tell the truth for once list the some of the 10 things Americans will not to watch or use in 2014,
Cable tv is here to stay, due the fact that you have to purchase internet in order to receive NETFLIX, or any other online media. So by the time you purchase 1 or 2 of the local packages all 4 are always a better buy.
High speed Internet is 60 a month alone when basic cable, internet, home phone and cell service can be locked in for 2 years for 140 a month.
As far as the laptop/tablet debate, I have noticed that the "latest and greatest" toys that vendors are pushing are "ultrabooks": lightweight, yet powerful laptops equipped with a touchscreen. These have both the functionality of a standard laptop PC AND a tablet device. So it seems to me that rather than tablets replacing PCs, laptop PCs are stealing the tablet's capabilities and adding to their own.
