AT&T owns you... More specifically you have no privacy with AT&T.

This was already posted on BoingBoing but it is so important it bears repeating here & everywhere...
Shortly, AT&T formerly SBC, will come knocking asking you to sign a new privacy policy.
Here's the first snipit from

The new policy says that AT&T -- not customers -- owns customers' confidential info and can use it "to protect its legitimate business interests, safeguard others, or respond to legal process."

Awesome.. But does the awesomeness stop there? No.

The policy also indicates that AT&T will track the viewing habits of customers of its new video service -- something that cable and satellite providers are prohibited from doing.

Moreover, AT&T (formerly known as SBC) is requiring customers to agree to its updated privacy policy as a condition for service -- a new move that legal experts say will reduce customers' recourse for any future data sharing with government authorities or others.

What else is there to say? Don't use AT&T!!11!!
