Aren't those phones a bit old?... Shouldn't you be able to find something from at least 2015 in that price range?

I think one of the reasons for there still being bloated middlemen in the game is that people are having a hard time switching from the old concepts of the market to the new, internet ones.

I didn't think any admins/mods were more corrupt than the ones at GameFAQs but reddits sound like they could top prize!

I think human interactions just fall into similar patterns, regardless of the medium.

We thought that the internet would democratize commerce, but in retrospect that was naive. The problem with the internet is that it's really hard to trust anonymous strangers. The simplest way around that is to cling to established brands. So we jumped ship from Best Buy and Target to Amazon, Newegg, and Steam. When you think about it, an established brand is really just a middle man between what you want and the person/people who make it. The reality is that the corporate structures aren't all that different, there are just no retail locations: most transactions take place on a screen, over the internet. Other than physically picking something out, very little has changed.

The funny thing is, Amazon is going to start opening bookstores. So after completely butchering the book sales industry, they're just going to swoop in and and fill the void that was left after stores like Borders went under.

In the end, the economy is not looking all that different. If anything, things are more stratified than ever, because there are more "small business owners" who can make billions thanks to the internet. Think Uber, AirBnB, companies like that, which can have global reach with very low overhead. But whatever the industry, there will be a handful of major players making billions, while the rest squabble over scraps. It's what people complained about with fast food, chain restaurants, and big box retail, just with ecommerce and convenience apps.

Well Amazon has been dominant for quite some time now. Even on board 8 some 70-80% of users voted it as their favorite large American company. (Small sample survey I did a few months ago but quite clear Amazon was the most popular)

I think TV fucks kids up, it's too overstimulating, I wouldn't let them watch it regardless of what studies say. And by "let them watch it" I mean I wouldn't have TV service anywhere in the household. Only a hypocrite and a terrible parent would actually have TV and not let them watch it or control how long they are allowed to watch it.

edit: That facebook mental health video is trying to sell me a supplement called DNA Force.

It's all they talk about for like three minutes. That and Super Male Vitality.
I thought I was clicking a video about Facebook. :p

Though I agree that we live in historic times.

Our government has banned fast food adverts on TV until after 9pm so kids don't see it.
