Could You Live Without Broadband at Home? Steve Wozniak Does!

Could you live without broadband at home? I don't know if I could, but Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak can. That's what he has recently said in Australia talking about his home in Los Gatos, California:
I don't have broadband at my home. I, Steve Wozniak, don't have broadband at my home. I live one kilometre out of the main part of town. Broadband is a monopoly in my town—that means you can get it from a cable company, but I don't have cable. There are 50 companies that want to sell me DSL, but they've all got to go through the Horizon wires—the local phone company—and I've got one of the two worst Horizons in the country. And so I can't get broadband in my house.
So how does the Woz live without wired internet access? More here.

I feel so sorry for the guy, living in a house without broadband would be hell for me, I really can't lie.

I'd go insane if there wasn't internet in my house, but respect to Wozniak.

isn't that dude rich as shit? couldn't he just have the cable installed straight to his house on his own expenses?

I couldn't, and I think that Wozniak is bullshitting us.

The sweet music of a 56k modem. Or from the sounds of it, even then he doesn't have one.
