The Gizmodo blog did some arithmetic, and it figures that all the digital subscriptions you need to keep all of the devices some people view as necessary these days can cost near a thousand dollars.

Here’s the list of subscriptions:

  • Smartphone plan
  • Netbook plan
  • Slate plan
  • Home internet
  • Cable TV
  • Landline phone
  • Mobile Internet
  • Wi-Fi hotspots
  • Netflix
  • TiVo
  • Xbox Live Gold membership
  • Hulu
  • Flickr Pro
  • Navigation (GPS)

The total dollar cost ranges from $208 to $738.

Granted, some of these may be double counted. And there are ways you could cut costs. For example, you could choose to have either a landline phone, or a mobile phone. Yet, some people don’t have the option to choose, because the phone company wants you to have a landline in order to get DSL. And the cable company wants you to have cable TV to have cable Internet.

CashBut even if you skimp on some subscriptions, others will multiply simply because you have multiple members of the same household, and they need their own separate plans for each of their phones. If you can live with having Internet access on your phone only at home, the office, and major urban centers, you could make do with only Wi-Fi Internet on your cell phone.

Still, no matter what, all these digital subscriptions do add up to a lot, and can be expensive when you add them all up.

    I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy a article
    on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is a result of the fire communicated in the article I
    browsed. And on this article Digital Subscriptions Cost $1000
    per Month? | Digitivity. I was actually excited enough to write a thought :-P I actually
    do have some questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be simply me
    or do some of these remarks appear like left by brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I’d like
    to follow anything fresh you have to post.

    Could you list the complete urls of all your communal sites like your Facebook
    page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  4. Hi, i think that i noticed you visited my website thus i came to “return the choose?I am attempting to find things to improve my site!I guess its ok to use some of your ideas!!

  5. That was I think quite expensive for subscription and I’m wondering why people who consider the idea though it’s kind of unpractical.

  6. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don’t know who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;) Cheers!

    If your boxy t-shirt is short and shows your midriff, you can even pair it with a pair of wide-legged
    trousers to balance out the look. Avoid anything gaudy; look
    for a color that sets off your eye color or skin tone. Considering this to be “in design,” hoards of young ladies during
    the country have taken to wearing lingerie-fashion tops to the office “as is” or below a enterprise suit with the lace
    peeking out.
