I’m in the midst of downloading Microsoft’s new free flight simulator. Did I mention it was FREE?
I clicked the buttons and began drawing down the file. The counter said it was a 1.485GB transfer! Are you kidding me?
None of this would be possible without high speed Internet. It’s easy to pick on Comcast (and I have for a variety of transgressions), but the high speed Internet has done nothing but get better with time.
Ten years from now we’ll look back at these speeds and laugh, but I remember 300 baud modems. The difference is startling.
