also,

ownership

they find it's far easier for you to take slavery up the ass if you feel like you own it. sweat equity, pay for it (like paying 600 bucks for your newest apple/android spy device! so much easier than rfid-chipping hundreds of millions!)

I am not sure if you can see the irony of your question.

See Orwell was partly wrong. In 1984 the state pays for your TV.

They have got this shit SO tight that they have you pay for all of it! They sell you the latest logo and label. You swallow the lie as fast as you can.

You pay them to watch you.

What is that saying??? There is no such good slave as one who thinks himself free!

Because what is better than being able to spy on the proletariat? Having them pay for it.

Unless you pay for it they can't afford to spy on you.

Add in free data backup. Since they have everything, you should be able to use them to find that porn video you remember from 15 years ago.

So many people would go for this, sadly. "Get unlimited free cloud storage for all your devices! We'll save a copy of everything you save a copy of, automatically! Lost your phone? No problem, replace it with a blank and download your backup from this morning and you're back on track! Can't remember the name of that girl you met at that bar on Thursday, November 10th of last year? No problem, just use our handy location history app! Find the right date, and then see names and pictures of everyone you crossed paths with!*"

Just send a text mesage, they are a public service and should be able to help you out!

All the money they make from running drugs should at least get us a $50 credit on our cable bills.

I don't need the entertainment. It's nice, but I could do without it. What I need is the internet connection that lets me keep up with work and school, that way I can pay the school so I can get my degree and land a good job so I can provide for myself in the future. Can't really do much without a computer or smartphone these days.

The flow of wealth is not related to the activity; Skype will always want more cash regardless of whether the 'break even' line has already been passed.

That's M$ for you.

Google just advertises.

Apple just charges up front.
