    This must change.
    TV shows the same programs(some are good) over and over and there are far too many obnoxious advertisements.
    Reform is needed, which the conservatives are sure to block.
    But, twenty years from now, these reforms will occur and the conservatives can soak their heads... There will be a marriage, a melding of TV, cable, and the Internet..
    There may not even be a Cable, FAIK.
    Its waste which must be eliminated. Some , 1% , of commercials are of use.
    Do you seriously think it's a good idea for the government to start regulating the content of the commercials and the programs? If you don't like a commercial or show, feel free to ignore it or turn your TV off.

    I'm not sure. We bundle cable and internet. Costs ~$115 a month.

    When I was at the end of nuke school, living in upstate NY, my 3 roommates and I were able to split the cable bill with the 3 other tenets upstairs (we lived in a house that had been converted to a duplex). We each paid ~$4 for our cable. It was the best deal I have ever had. This was about 10 years ago though.

    This makes me want FIOS in my area even more.

    I could actually go faster, it's currently available up to 50mb down/25mb up, but it's probably not worth it at the moment. They keep promising 100mb up and down soon, probably by summer or Q3. After a while though, it's a lot of diminishing returns. I can already download a gig in a minute or two, is it really worth it to get a gig in a few seconds?

    Unfortunately, if you don't currently have FIOS, you're not going to get it. Verizon stopped rolling it out, at least for the moment.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
