So, I already have a FiOS connection and this sort of talk is really just
darkly amusing to me (for now; nothing says they can't cap FiOS), but if
you're like most people and still using cable broadband access, the talk of
traffic caps probably hits closer to home. If that's the case (or you're
like me and just have a morbid sense of humor), Time Warner apparently has
offered a Guide
for what traffic caps mean. For your convenience, every 1 Gigabyte is the
equivalent of: 70,000 e-mails, 34 hours of gaming, 1,344 hours of Web
browsing, 569 photos, 277 music files, 7 hours of YouTube, 3 hours of
standard definition streaming video, OR 45 minutes of high-definition
streaming video. That OR there is what really puts things into
perspective. Hope you don't plan on much more than a hour of gaming a day
(on average). Capped plans start to make Spam emails not only annoying but
costly, too, if you get a significant amount.

This is funny, since Ubuntu is free and CDs cost nickles.
