It may not be practical or easy to use for some who still have dial-up. There are still some of us surfing it slowly out there.

If you wnat to join the 21st Century, evryone needs to go to Cable. Dial-Up definitely does nto cut it even in the siomple things. Dial-Up is the way of what the disc is now becoming. Pretty soon, cable costs have to come down like everything else.

The only problem thinking that the cost of a cable connection will come down is--cable companies usually have a monopoly wherever they are. I would like to see it all come down in cost too as I pay over $100 each month for tv and Internet.

Forget about this if you have a dialup provider.
