I've been a custom of theirs before smart phones were even around. I had a small pay-as-you-go phone before getting their iPhone. It's $30 a month unlimited but throttled after 1 gig. Which for me is no big deal. Just give me phone, e-mail and weather and I'm fine. Also, when I bought my iPhone 5c I think it was $350. Which was $100 cheaper than everyone else at that time.

They had a commercial with several celebrities showing energy efficient appliances. "Which will be available soon." Jo Anne Worley proudly displayed a washer that worked with sound waves. Hence, not needing a dryer or detergent. Which was funny considering how many different detergents she did ads for. Whatever happened to that 'modern' marvel?

If they're going to sell our data then they have to wait until 2018 and ALL previous data must be deleted. Everyone starts from scratch with a clean slate. If not, then all federal employees and elected officials using government computers must give FREE public access to THEIR previous user history. This, of course, will need to be available in hard copy for those who choose not to use the internet. ;)
