One would argue that putting in horse stables 100 years ago was a smart
move, as people use horses. You can't know that someone's going to up

Likewise: making content available offline is a smart move because, surprise,
not everybody is online. Nor does it seem like the whole world will be in our
lifetimes, barring someone inventing "the internet that anyone can access."
