I’ve been thinking about something these past weeks, and two stories from yesterday really brought it all together for me: this new media stuff is going to get damn expensive. You have $9.99 here, $4.95 there, a monthly subscription, service fees, you name it — it all adds up.
I am pretty enthusiastic about CBS streaming local news to cell phones. I like the idea of accessing my local news during times of trouble — what could be more convenient during an earthquake or, heck, a playoff game? But to pay $4.95 a month for the privilege (plus my regular cell charges) strikes me as, well, so not worth it.
