haha. I agree this seems like it would be illegal on many different levels. If any carriers decide to use pudding they better plan on offering free service. Horrible idea!

What would it be like. I say crap on the phone and then laxitve ad comes streaming to my phone. I talk to my wife about maybe doing what married people do and comdom ads and Viagra come to my phone.

This Technology would be a total invasion of privacy.

Now if this was a service that you could subscribe to that was linked to a search engine that would be awesome.

1. Assume everything you say over a cellphone is being recorded for 'homeland security'.

2. Do a search and see how many cellco's worldwide are implementing push-ads. Also, how their consultants say their customers will enjoy receiving ads.

At least Veriz. execs said they'd 'allow' their customers to op-out.
