Bugs & Viruses AT&T has told the U.S. Congress that its customers agreed to host Carrier IQ tracking software on their cellphones in their contracts. You might recall that, after the scandal over warrentless surveillance broke in 2006, AT&T quietly changed their contract for internet service to say that it -- not its customers -- owns all the customers' internet records. Those concerned about privacy might consider whether AT&T merits their trust.

Maybe we need separate contracts(the bill + privacy contracts)... and clear to understand ;)
If this happens it will feel less sneaky.

Anyways... like computer science, some kind of law class seems to be fitting as a compulsory subject.

OSNews readers are much more informed and let me say thanks ;)
