DSL woes

How about a little computer lingo fisking? A special my ISP is running, SBC Yahoo! DSL Pro - Incredible Speed, Incredible Price:
SBC Yahoo! DSL Pro is ideal for online gaming...

Well, besides getting illegal bootlegs, that's about the only thing it's good for. Computers themselves are much the same way. The computing power required by the average computer user was met about 1998, the only reason to get a new system anymore is for service reasons or gaming.
...working from home...
Sounds like a good thing to blow money on.
...downloading feature-length movies...
And there's such a plethora of places to get legal movies from over the net! I hope you like watching trailers for Ben Afflect's latest turd of a movie!
and just about anything.
[i.e. 'legal' music downloads]
With all that speed, you'll be able to do more online and do it faster than ever. It's incredible how much time you can save."
You mean how much time you'll blow. It's great how the ISPs throttle down the bandwidth and then come around as great saviors that are ready to give you your speed back for ten more bucks a month!
