Re: The fight for technology.....

Can you imagine a time when your freedom to operate is in jeopardy due to a squabble with an equipment provider?  Or perhaps you disagree with their policies?  Or......?  1984 may not be science fiction much longer. 


This very well be a time for rethinking ownership strategy, and determining which "platforms" justify total upgrading and which are rebuilt over and over.  Technology should serve the farmer and not the other way around. 


Imagine if the EPA could insist on software that would shut down the machine if you were "out of compliance."  Or if you were late with tax payments.
