    "Facebook is the worst violation of privacy imaginable. Everything you do is monitored. Why do people voluntarily give away their valuable information to be sold and watched? Avoid at all costs."

    "Netflix functionality has met consumer demand and, at times exceeded it as we broke away from cable, asked for our favorite shows on our schedule rather than theirs, and took our entertainment mobile. Anywhere you want to watch, Netflix is there. I've used the app on my kindle, my internet-ready tv, and all of the family game consoles from the Wii on. This is one app that is truly must-have, from which you'll get countless hours of enjoyment. "

    "I wouldn’t say YouTube is something that belongs to a “must-have list, because it comes pre-installed in most if not all Android mobile phones, and sometimes even Apple phones. YouTube has become somewhat of an indispensable platform for video, much like Twitter and Facebook for social media, without much competition in the near future; and thus I doubt that people still don’t have it on their phone."

    "Its great for walking around the city but if you're going on a long trip it will take you through the middle of nowhere through roads that destroy your car and are a million miles away from any gas stations or restrooms. It seems to have some kind of issue just putting me on a highway, personally I'd rather pay5 bucks at a toll than have my car bottom out 80 miles away from the closest town."
