does "Unlimited" have another meaning in your world?
to me "Unlimited" means that I shouldn't have to worry about hitting an invisible cap on downloads.
talk about download police
There is an adult
meaning of the word, then there's the regular meaning. I'm never a friend of the cable providers, but this time they're correct. They thought they were addressing adults - so sure, they need to readjust their reality filters - but to an adult, unlimited means "as much as I can, not as much as I want" and it also means "not at the expense of impeding someone else who is paying as much as me for unlimited, and whose greenbacks are as green as mine."
That's what it means in my world.
This is like the fellow who complained here on BBR about a letter he got from Emusic.com - they also promise "Unlimited" downloads, and his gripe is that they sent him a letter similar to the above after he downloaded something like 300 full albums in one weekend and don't give a damn about other paying customers who want to use the service, he's some kind of Commander Data, gotta listen to 5 CDs all at the same time. Good grief indeed.
It's always going to be the craziest, nuttiest, most immature users who will prompt service providers to impose limits that are completely unnecessary for 99.999% of us, and who are going to end up impacting the experience for all of us.
