    The people who invented computers had a libertarian mind set.
    Everything the computer could do was intended to be free.
    Bill Gates literally walked into becoming the richest man in the world because other people wouldn't take IBMs money to monopolize

    I canceled my internet because they demanded 60 bucks per month and have an attitude like they don't give a fk
    The truth was I planned for it to be temporary, but I haven't missed it at all.(I just have phone internet)
    It's in believable, they don't give a crap about user accessibility, or fixing errors that arise.
    No access to files on your own phone, no way to delete apps.
    No restore discs for computers...
    No clear descriptions of products...
    Incompetent tech support.
    Companies hiding their phone numbers..
    Now, everyone has their dishwasher hooked up to the internet, they don't give a crap about anything other than collecting money

    I did some of that original coding and I did not get rich! I intended to make money it was hard work. I thank god for mans lazyness everyday! Almost every back door I created then still exists today. Thank you copy and paste!

    Shutting one down is not the most damaging, I prefered putting small errors in so they had to fix every thing they sent out. Way bigger issue than shutting down. B ack doors are still all over the place , if I wnat in it is just a matter of time!

    Why would a dishwasher be hooked up to the internet when an RS-323 cable would work as an interface...
