wouldn't this be considered one of those things like big brother is watching. if the cia got in trouble for it wouldn't a company named after a ice-cream wannabe, to.

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!

This would be in the license agreement that you would have to agree to, to be a subscriber obviously.

egad! this makes cell companies more crooked! I will officially ban any carrier that does this. Unless I get unlimited minutes for free... and a sweet phone.

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.

meh. I doubt it will linger. I'm sure every carrier will allow people to opt out, captain verizon pusher.
