Oh man. Overhearing a young guy at the library telling his mom that he bought an Xbox One and then had to get rid of it because he doesn't have internet and most of the features on it require an internet connection. This really resonates with recent estimates that 49% of America doesn't have broadband, and Diana Nucera's talk at #Eyeo2019 talking about how a huge percentage of Detroit's population has NO internet, not even mobile access
The guy took his Xbox to the pawn shop the next day :(
@darius I feel like our society tells a lot of Americans the future is not for them.
he should've tried selling it on ebay or Craigslist instead of using a pawn shop.
