@pinkprius The more things change, the more they stay the same.

@mindnmotion I think that things don't change because many people don't try to.
Thats why the same people accept an amazon checking account and an amazon online retailer monopoly.

@pinkprius I try to give Amazon as little of my money as possible. I use them only for digital music. That's it.

@pinkprius In China it's even worse. Bank notes are becoming obsolete while mobile payments thrive. There your entire transaction history is tracked by Tencent (WeChat) and Alibaba (Alipay). FMI see: youtube.com/watch?v=75AXINUL47
