Denizens, consider this T-Mobile commercial:
For the Uninitiated, this is a blatant rip-off of the old “Hi, I’m a Mac/(sigh) And I’m a PC” commercials that Stevie Jobs apparently – and erroneously – thought were hilarious.
Ever since T-Mobile came out with these BS spots, I’d tell anyone who’d listen – which usually amounted to Mrs. Venomous – “Dammit, it didn’t work for Apple, and it’s bloody well not gonna work for T-Mobile”.
MRS. VENOMOUS: Yes, dear.
Well, AT&T, having probably gotten a little tired of the mosquito biting it, did the appropriate thing – they smacked the mosquito into oblivion:
AT&T is planning on buying T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion in cash and stock. The deal must be approved by both the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission first.
“This transaction represents a major commitment to strengthen and expand critical infrastructure for our nation’s future,” said AT&T Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson. “It will improve network quality, and it will bring advanced LTE capabilities to more than 294 million people.”
Guess we can see that little cutie in blue & orange now instead of pink polka-dots.
Score another WITY for His Rudeness.
