One of the reasons i did not get more responses is because i make it a point to NOT shamelessly plug my threads on others threads...but back to the
topic at hand...These "big 3," especially AT&T, are the perfect vehicles to usher in a system like this. They have inconspicuosly implanted them
selves into the lives of nearly everyone in the US, and in several other countries as well.
As a side note, I happen to be employed by one of the aforementioned companies. One of their new product offerings, (that is already in place in over
3 million homes as of the time of this response), affords them extreme control over individuals. Although I do not have sources to prove it, I know
for a fact that there are plans in the works to use the product I am referring to to start "direct marketing campaigns." They plan to monitor what
types of channels and shows are watched most, as well as what types of websites are visited most frequently, and use this info to direct
advertisements such as mailings, emails, pop ups and even on the fly commercials and banners at the bottom of your tv screen, enticing you to purchase
the things they already know you are interested in. Brilliant business model, borderline invasion of privacy, and out right underhanded-ness...in my
humblest of opinions.
