Seriously. Who the fuck walks around watching video on a low quality
screen. Even when traveling I wouldn't a movie on a 3" or 9" screen.
Stupid. Trying interacting with other humans you iNerds.

You think Apple has that much control.  Interesting.

Imagine that:

Company's offered "unlimited data" secure in the knowledge that the 
crappy devices available would make sure that no one actually used very 
much...

....and then Apple had the gall to offer a product where it was actually 
worth using a lot of data.

The nerve.

Finding Average of Sets of Data
It's been a while since I've been in the math field, but now I need to use matlab to get some statistic information on sets of data. I'd like to collect data and then try to fit a distribution to it. I've found that I can attempt to do so using some items in the statistics toolbox. However, my collected data isn't perfect. It's just from one trial. However, say I have 100 separately collected sets of data. I don't care about the distribution of the individual sets of data, but rather the average.
