WARNING: The Death of Telephone Privacy Is Upon Us

The news out of Chicago was that for $110, you could buy the call records of any number, including cell phones, from a simple website service. What a fricken travesty!

I can’t help but think this is the telcos’ doing. Where else could you get those records from (tap the switches)? The Illinois Legislature moved quickly to ban the sale of the phone records, and I suggest Tom, Dick, Harry and Sally take measures into their own hands as well.

This is a massive class action lawsuit in the making, and while I generally think they are a waste of time and precious resources, anything that sticks it to the absolutely pathetic telcos is time well spent.
