Subject: Operation Chokehold
On Friday, December 18, at noon Pacific time, we will attempt to overwhelm the AT&T data network and bring it to its knees. The goal is to have every iPhone user (or as many as we can) turn on a data intensive app and run that app for one solid hour. Send the message to AT&T that we are sick of their substandard network and sick of their abusive comments. THe idea is we’ll create a digital flash mob. We’re calling it in Operation Chokehold. Join us and speak truth to power!
This is sweeter music to my ears than Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama. For all of you AT&T haters like myself, we can declare victory. What is even funnier about this is that these actions are all perfectly legal under the terms and conditions of service. Everyone is going to use their iPhones as they were intended. Looks like Ralph de la Vega is going to pay dearly for his threats of ending the unlimited data plans instead of doing big things like: upgrading their crappy network. I feel like dancing an Irish jig. Payback is sweet, sweet music to the company that was complicit in tearing the fourth amendment into shreds along with the Bushie machine. If this is not power to return to the consumer, I do not know what is. Smile, AT&T, you have just been punked!
