Re: re:UN: The Problem With The Internet Today is too open Inevitable and unstoppable?? I wouldn't go that far. Granted there are those that would love for that to happen but that doesn't mean it's definite. I don't even think it would be technologically feasible unless you implant RFID chips in everyone; even then, it would be hackable. You have to consider the expense and the justification. Considering we have so many other anonymous 'venues', I see little point. For instance, what about all those anonymous blue boxes that I can drop a letter into and have a message delivered to anyone... should those be eliminated also? I agree there are those that want ALL anonymity eliminated but I don't see it happening... ever.
Re: re:UN: The Problem With The Internet Today is too open The nation's public highway system is similar. Although traffic/tollbooth/signal cams can capture pictures of license plates and maybe faces, if you rent a car under an alias, you're anonymous. Most contraband traffickers get caught because they or their vehicles violate a traffic law and act suspicious when police stop them.
AT&T in the drivers seat..... AT&T has positioned themselves as well as they possible could post t-moble, and the wind is definitely at their back for the foreseeable future. It will be a balancing act, but if they can reward investors and accelerate LTE investment with room for a possible acquisition or two of spectrum, they'll be writing their own book.
Re: AT&T in the drivers seat..... I though these shared plans were the work of the Devil according to everyone? One can dismiss Verizon numbers if you wish because all new customers HAVE to g with a shared plan and many current customers probably think they have to switch. But at&t has made it clear that shared plans are optional yet people switch anyway.
