By the time the singularity is possible (if ever possible), your children's children's children's children will be dead.

Technology doesn't move as fast as we think it does (i.e. 2001: A space odyssey, old Popular Science magazines). I'd be surprised if by 2050 they have even attempted vertical farming buildings in cities.

Also I would follow the same rules as any other product, meaning that the consumer's interest is more valued than the companies, at least in terms of services.

I'd prefer to think of it like iTunes. Sure the DRM is restrictive and unnecessary, but the music is cheap and plenty of people seem happy with it.

I'd love it, to be honest. Assuming of course I was able to get the non-shitty Ad-life.

What? Effective immortality and the ability to continue pestering your living acquaintances.

Assuming of course I'd be able to handle all of the ridiculous fees.

Seriously, being conscious like that would drive anyone insane. No thanks, throw my corpse in a shallow ditch please...
