AT&T mobile privacy

On one of the tech blogs that I read, I came across this bit of news: AT&T is soon to start selling user data to 3rd party advertisers. Oh joy. Although anonymized, it does include information such as location, browser history, mobile app usage, etc.

Thankfully, there is a pretty quick and painless opt-out available. Details here.

As one of the commenters on slashdot noted, there are additional marketing preferences that you can fiddle around with in your account. These pertain to the marketing AT&T may directly do to you.
