I can’t stand the cell phone carriers. I know, it’s a pet peeve, and I should get over it. But cellphones are such an integral part of our work and our lives (and our worklives) that I’ve come to believe the general assh*lishness of the cell carriers is a major issue we should address more often. From the nightmare maze of their plans, their billing, their annoying commercials, switching carriers, witching from cool names like Cingular to dumb names like AT$T, their locked phones, charging for stupid text messages, $5 FOR FRIGGIN RING TONES!, WHY CAN’T I GET THIS &$@%^& THING TO SYNC WITH MY EMAIL!!!

Anyway, I’m thinking of starting a new series, or at least a new category. In the meantime, I agree 100% with this post from Wired.com.
* (Update) Oh… and I forgot to mention the little fact that they colluded with the government to illegally spy on us law-abiding US citizens, and then are now likely to receive blanket immunity for doing so because their Capital Hill lobby has more money than God. Oh yeah. And that too.
