Quite the to-do was created this week when telematics provider OnStar sent out new privacy terms that states the company will continue to collect information about your driving habits even if you no longer subscribe to the company’s service. What the what!?! That is sort of like your local phone company still keeping track of your calls even though you switched to a VoIP provider.

So, AT&T Mobility is finally set to commercially launch LTE services across five markets this weekend, throwing its hat into the oncoming LTE battle that is currently dominated domestically Verizon Wireless. (Sorry MetroPCS.)
(I only half kid with the use of the term “finally” as I still vividly remember AT&T executive Kris Rinne speaking at a 4G World event a couple of years ago basically saying the carrier was in no hurry to roll out LTE services as its plans for HSPA+ would take care of its mobile broadband needs. This plan was quickly pushed aside following Verizon Wireless’ rapid LTE rollout plans and AT&T Mobility has managed to throw up a LTE network in a relatively short period of time.)

Not sure if I am like the rest of you, but short work weeks are somehow the most awesome and most frustrating things ever invented by the Dalai Lama. As such I both love and hate these four-day work weeks with a passion I usually reserve only for breakfast.

So, word on the street is that AT&T is looking to buy T-Mobile USA so it can either acquire sufficient spectrum assets to remain operational and save T-Mobile USA from imploding or it wants to remove a robust and viable competitor from the market, torture puppies and burn the Constitution.

Despite how it may appear, I do try to avoid bringing Apple into every one of my WOTW columns, though by doing so I make this job harder than it needs to be. I mean the company is such an integral part of the decisions that many in this industry make that to not include them is really a job itself.
