Why is technology so terrible in 2021? It seemed better years ago

Every time I watch the news now every interview they do looks like it's being done over a choppy skype call from 2010. Even 5 years ago it seemed like the quality was much better, even if the interview was being done from a remote studio...

I'm sure you understand not everyone has access to Broadband. Not to worry, President Biden's plan, includes money to make Broadband available to everyone.

[@9416,Northwest] All politicians are puppets, the only reason I liked Trump was because he sucked at it.

Not really.

Likely because it’s going out over someone’s shitty home Internet connection, and then being reshot with a camera that has a completely different frame rate.

I've definitely noticed. It's choppy even on the network news. The phone is strange, a malingerer becomes a "ma-a- li- iing gEr -ER..." when I say it.
It's like watching and stopping us from talking is more important than letting us get through. Just looking at all these comments that gaslight you, I'd say you're onto something.

Because 5 years ago you were looking at the same quality through a screen with smaller resolution, probably. A 480p video on a 1080, 2k, or even worse 4k screen look much uglier than the same video on a 480/720p one.

You mean why technology haven't fully updated? That's actually a good thing

[@860047,BeatMySelf2Pain4Perfection] How is that good?

[@1201426,JoeyHabib] because I hate how Technology forcefully invade our lives including our employment. Although I have nothing wrong with Technology but I hate how they go too far that can spell trouble in the future

Technology is getting better, not worse.

[@373024,DDonde] Not from what I seen. Even in the late 90's interviews from remote locations on news channels weren't all choppy and distorted.

[@1201426,JoeyHabib] That's an issue with the news channel, not the technology.

[@373024,DDonde] any excuse to say no you didn't notice that!

It seems pretty good.
The commercials mess it up.😉
