Then why not act accordingly and vote with your wallet?
That's how a free market works. You cast your vote!
I have just heard, on National Public Radio, that, once a person purchases a "TouchPad", "Kindle" or other device, from any particular manufacturer, that the purchaser is "LOCKED IN", with that service. If a service goes out-of-buisness, then the owner must purchase another device, linking them with another SOLE provider. If this is true, then WHY should people buy these electronics, if the units are "criipled" to s sole-source provider?
I purchase ALOT of goods, THROUGH Amazon, which are sold, via Amazonssite, yet are sold by third parties. This way, if one source "goes under" I can find another source, via the Amazon directory.
Is it not very DANGEROUS to have ANY product which can only be used with a sole-provider?
What happens if a sole-provider wants higher revenues? What is to stop the provider from changing membership from say $24.00per year, to $240,000.00 per year?
Arent these "sole-source" deals dangerous?
