I fought the cord, and the cord won

I had it all planned out. Inspired by Macworld contributor Joel Mathis’s recent piece on the subject, I was finally motivated and ready to cancel my cable television subscription. It didn’t work.

When I’ve haggled with Comcast about the cost of my package they’ve countered enough to make me keep my service. Plus they’re the only game in town for high-speed Internet (DSL doesn’t cut it and we’re a long way off, if ever, from getting fiber to the home in my area). So I can relate to Lex Friedman’s frustrations here.
