    Geeze. Now I have to find the opt out. Better yet, I will call VZW and blast them on the phone. I love doing that.

    Jaydee, there's an entire page on myverizon that let's you opt out of everything. Just make sure you scroll the whole page AND save each choice

    Great... just when I was getting myself all nice and riled up, you have to go and be helpful. THANKS for that.

    (No really, thank you, going to do just that right now. )

    An "anonymous, unique identifier"... that is then associated with your Device's phone number.

    Yeah... no one could connect the dots after that.

    That's kinda counter intuitive. I mean, why track browsing on a possibly shared computer? To profile a smart phone user? You risk contaminating ad-targeting data obtained from possibly the best personal browsing data collection device of all, the password-protected, location enabled, smart phone.

    Maybe it is early - where is the OPT OUT found?

    Ah, on the Left, Manage Privacy....

    If I recall, this was mentioned before somewhere. I was already OUT of all of those items.

    Still outrageous.
