    Seriously.. 50$ a month is crippling not empowering.

    In Iqbal's talk he looks at the typical system for purchasing a car in the developed world. Most people put down some lump some of money, and then make payments on their car. Because the car enables them to reach a job that pays well, the car, in escence, pays for itself through it's application.

    The same logic has been applied to mobiles, which I think makes them far from crippling.
