At one time, much of the information on the internet was text. Videos were avoided, since the bandwidth could have a steep price. Then, "unlimited data" appeared, which let people abuse the data to extremes. This led to bloat, which led to way too much popping up all over a page, and finally: Too much information is in videos, data is again getting pricey, and people like me are forced to wade through the garbage to find the kernel of truth...at a price I find too high.
I avoid several site on principle - they slow down my entire browser with all the junk. British newspapers seem to be the worst.ReplyDelete
I do the same. Some sites I immediately close, when the bloat appears.Delete
Our home is two miles from the source of our internet signal.
Unlimited is wonderful, but means almost nothing.
Buffering is constant.
Buffering doesn't usually bother me, since I don't watch videos, or play games. Still, according to all providers, all data is at the speed of light, and the small print only appears for a second during the commercials.Delete
The cost of being uninformed is high too. I’ve completely dispensed with the mass media and haven’t missed them one bit. I am on alt tech now but even there... the signal to noise ratio is abysmal. You have to fact check in the modern world, and fact check the fact checkers.ReplyDelete
I despise most of the media. Not only are they dishonest, they're stupid to believe the crap they peddle.Delete
