Guess I Won't Be Using Sprint. Hot on the heels of this morning's IPL panel on spyware comes the AP's report "Major Advertisers Caught in Spyware Net." From the article: "Melinda Tiemeyer, spokeswoman for Sprint PCS, said Internet users have clicked on ads delivered by adware, meaning they find them useful. Sprint is OK with using adware because users, she said, accept it in exchange for phone service offers and discounts." (How about a class action against the people who actually click on these ads, making themprofitable?)
