It's big brother calling...
I find this article very disturbing.

Apparently AT&T have instituted a new policy that says they -- not their customers -- own customer's confidential information and can use it "to protect its legitimate business interests, safeguard others, or respond to legal process."

In addition to tracking viewing habits of customers of its new video service (which, apparently, cable companies aren't allowed to do), they apparently think nothing of providing warrantless access to customers' e-mail and web browsing.

This, to put it mildly, is unacceptable. We will be shopping for a new DSL provider this weekend.

We're watching you. Quick! Do something mildly illegal. Then we'll run and tell your mother. And dub-yah the dunce-boy: Mr. I've Ushering In a New Era of Spying on Our Citizens.

Try Covad. Slightly less evil than At&T. But not cheap.
