commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

We are a country of data Information and Entertainment ……..

Flat screen TV’s…….Blackberrys….iPhones……Cable …….Xbox’s…….Satillite’s……Flat Screen Computers…….

John Anderson and Sharon Rapoport (above) estimate they spend $400 a month, or close to $5,000 a year, keeping their family of four entertained at home.

There are the $30-a-month data plans on their BlackBerry Tour cellphones. The Roanoke, Va., couple’s teenage sons, Seth and Isaac, each have $50 subscriptions for Xbox Live and send thousands of texts each month on their cellphones, requiring their own data plans.

DirecTV satellite service, high-speed Internet access and Netflix for movie nights add more.

“We try to be aware of it so it doesn’t get out of control,” said Mr. Anderson, who with his wife founded an advertising agency. “But, yeah, I would say we’re pretty wired.”

In the Dogs house……we have Five TV’s on cable….One computer hard wired to cable….and a Lap top with Wifi……a  Blackberry and two cell phones ……with a few hard wired telephones and a fax machine with a seperate line……

And we spend about $400 a month….. just like the Rapoports…….

We’re hooked……….

Here’s the link for the rest of the piece……
