The Era of Downloaded Content
So with the purchase fo Time Warner by AT&T and Talk of Comcast looking at Fox, people are pretty nervouse about where there content will come from and what will it cost. There are talks of Alphabet (Google) picking up their fiber game again, or maybe 5g. Something, anything to keep things competative so the Netflix and Youtubes of the world don't get crushed.
I suggest it my be new time in our history, where we focus on pre-downloaded content. The era of the podcast maybe? Forget streaming..lets go back to mp3 collections and playlists. Hell, I am even open to Netflix sending me DVDs again..if they could only offer sending a whole series at once to feed my binging.
On another note, let's bring print back! Give me some good books and some magazines, even some comics. And on real paper, forget the kindle or ipad.
There are a ton of ways to consume content and to get it. Let's not have this little merger throw us in a tizzy. Just vote with the wallet, stop using their offerings the best you can and find another way. If we let to few companies control our entertainment and education for that matter, we may be forced to entertaine our children with cave paintings just to stick it to them.
