In my opinion, the only industry where the consumer is treated as an employee, and in doing so, the consumer has less ownership of the product. From products that can be purchased with your own money, to those that are only available through retail deals, the idea that the consumer, or at least the consumer class, is the primary owner of the product is a dangerous and misguided one.
With the advent of the internet, the idea that the consumer, or even the consumer class, is the owner of the product has become a thing. This isn’t just an issue for the food industry, but also for fashion, music, and film. Not only is there the consumer class, who can buy products, but there is also the service class, who can also get products, but not the same way.
That’s because the internet is only a consumer tool. We can watch all sorts of videos and buy all sorts of products. But the difference is that the consumer class only owns what’s tangible, not what’s intangible. If you own a CD, you can listen to it, but you can’t sell it, so it’s not really tangible. If you own a CD, the only difference between you and the buyer is that you can listen to it.
Now that we’ve explained the importance of ipho, lets talk about the service class. The service class is a third party, who owns the tangible item, and who we call “Buyer.” But unlike ipho, they don’t actually need to own the product to make money. That’s because they can “own” the intangible item, like a CD.
Because of this, there are several ways to get rid of the service class. One of which is called Pester. Pester allows you to send a message to a service class that you think might be stealing from you, but you cant send a message to your own service class, so it just rings their phone and they answer. Another is to buy a CD from another service class.
The ipho industry has a massive potential for abuse by scammers, thieves, and other bad actors. But for now, the best way to avoid being ripped off is to buy a legitimate service class.
To be fair, that’s a little bit of an overstatement, but I will say that the ipho industry is one of the most dangerous things to be in if not the most dangerous part of the internet. For starters, they are basically a middleman between you and the service class in question. They have a database of thousands of IP addresses, so they can simply identify you by your service class and make an offer to you.
It’s important to know that you can’t just get to the ipho site and start making an offer to someone, they have to be willing to take it. The service class that they give you is that they are willing to give you a service class. But it is an offer. So you have to be able to understand the offer, the terms, and then be willing to take it.
It goes without saying that if you want to go to the ipho site, you have to be ready to negotiate with them. If you want to buy something, you have to be able to negotiate. But you don’t want to just walk up to a vendor and say “Hey I want to buy this item.” You want to negotiate. You want to have a conversation with them. And if they say OK and you agree to a price, then you have a deal.
As long as you feel like you understand the offer (which means understanding the terms) and you are willing to negotiate (which is basically saying, “I trust you and want to go to the ipho site”), this is a pretty good deal. But it’s not a deal that you will be able to make every time.
