74 of 365: "High Greed Internet"

If you live in Canada and use the internet as much as I do, you will be interested in this short video commentary about the recent Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) decision to allow the big ISP's to issue Usage Based Internet Billing.  Basically, your internet bill will become pretty much like your data plan for your smartphone - expensive, restrictive and totally fucking confusing. 

So Canada takes a step back into the dark ages...but the government has called for a review of the decision and who knows, if enough of us kick up a fuss about this, the decision could get overturned if the CRTC doesn't take it back.

Greedy bastards.
