Big Brother

Does anyone else have a problem with this commercial and the fact that they are using the invasion of our privacy to market their network?

-They can read our emails, text messages and hear our conversations.
-GPS allows them to keep tabs on where we are at any given moment
-They eves drop on our break up conversations...

I don't know about you, but this "now network" doesn't seem like something as promising as they are making it out to be. They are real slick about it too...they ease into the idea of invasion of privacy with telling us how many people are on the network...they are able to handle a enormous number of emails and then slap you with the most common topic in emails....that's a little suspect.

I don't know whats worse...the fact that we have lost all ability to maintain privacy or the fact that Sprint puts it out there so openly and willingly to admit that they are watching our every move...

can someone say 1984?

Randy, I think the growing invasion of privacy and "big brother" issue is definitely something we're going to have to watch out for. I'm not sure how I feel yet about giving up my information. On the one hand, there are many benefits to be derived from the sharing of information with networks. Traffic could be improved, crime prevention, marketing, etc. On the other hand, there is an increased risk of abuse of power, and it is a LOT of power.
