: AT&T to monitor your network use
Interesting news from the MSNBC website that at&t now plans to monitor all internet use by users of their networks. Which of course will include all 4 milion+ iPhone users.
at&t claims they will be looking to stop illegal copyright sharing and such, but they will have full, carte blanche access to review all your emails, all your internet surfing and instant chat messages. Now of course all ISP's have the ability to review anything you do, but at&t has come out said they are absolutely going to keep an eye on everything you do.
Kind of creepy and quite honestly, I don't really see any ethical reason to go in and review everyone's use their network without some sort of a legal issue. If someone has been reported sharing illegal materials, then you go in and review their account. But just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
