    100$ says that Virgin will buy At&T and thus own the States.

    Virgin could buy At&T, and any other competitor :P

    Then microsoft will be like..

    "Hmm.. why stop at software and video games, LETS GO PHONE SERVICE" then either:

    A. Buy out all the rest

    B. make there own and undersell everyone cause they have the money to do it :P

    I work on the Deathstar, a good portion of my time is spent explaning the merger mania. From now on I`ll play this.
    I am convinced AT&T soley exists to defeat Verizon.

    Back in the 80`s it was less than 5 cents a minute to make a long distance phone call. Then Regan made AT&T break into all those little "Bells" and then it cost hundreds of dollars a month. Now that AT&T is back together for the most part will things get cheaper again?

    ^^^Cheaper AND wire tapped. :D

    Go Verizon. Still wire tapped, but less of the monopoly.

    Funny because I work for Cingular (now the new AT&T, of course) and we`ve all had to explain the change to people and it actually sounds a lot like this. :-D

    cingular is retarded. first they buy out att wireless and force all the users into cingular contracts. now they are going to have to re-draw up all the contracts so they read att.

    and microsoft does just that, they undersell the competition because gates has the money to do it. go do some research, the xbox has YET to have a profitable year. but gates didnt design/want designed the xbox to make money, he just wanted every to be forced into his way of thinking.

    kyur, do you speak of gates? if so, he doesnt make any money off the xbox, in fact, he looses money per unit sold. the only reason he is so rich is because he made computers for idiots. he made a gui system that was so basic but included all of the processes needed to run a business (which is very smart of him). his machines definately arent the best out there, and the system is very flawed, but he marketed it just right. and even more so, he was able to get programers to be loyal to his system and not design programs for other OS`s, forcing people who want that program to have his operating system. he now no longer cares about making money, his great, great, great grandson is set for life, he is more so out there to try to touch every inch of market there is to touch. the new zune makes very little money for the company compared to the profits apple has enjoyed from the sale of the ipod, but he just doesnt want to not be in a competition. get it?

    and i meant to say this earlier, but stephen colbert is the most overrated sack of poo there is on tv. i hate how he invites people on his show to not interview them, but to make fun of them and interrupt them in the middle of ANY point they try to make.

    Stephen Colbert is more comedian than news guy, sort of like how John Stewart is news with humour, Colbert is humour with news. It`s soley the fault of the guy geting interviewed if he thinks it`s going to be serious...if they`d watch the show before, they`d be better prepared :-?

    Haha, that was amusing. I still have my SBC DSL router (it says SBC on it); the one I got before it merged with the other thing and became AT&T.

    Now I have to be annoyed by the fact that the words "AT&T Yahoo" don`t flow as well as "SBC Yahoo". That has annoyed me from the start even though it has little or nothing to do with anything. Maybe I just have OCD...

    I wish I had a big red button that says "NO!! Hell No!" when I push it. :-(

    IkeRay: I think Kyur was referring to the money Gates made BEFORE the xBox came out.

    anyone who thinks Colbert sucks, you are too stupid to understand parody and sarcasam. Please, for the sake of the human race, dont reproduce. (that means stop having babies you red-state, bible thumping, pickup driving, tobacco chewing mongrels)

    You`re not doing much credit to all the blue-state, Bible bashing, Lexus driving, wine swigging metrosexuals I`ve met. You`re also not making much of a case for calling other people stupid when you cannot use proper punctuation.

    omg...**rolls eyes** both of you ( and anyone else who wants to try and instigate something) stop it right here. obviously different people are going to have different beliefs and ideals in different parts of the states...and also different views of each other...now then, before i or anyone else derail this thread more than it already has been, Stephen Colbert is a great comedian and satirest whose humor doesent appeal to all, but who still has refreshing comedic style

    i work for cingular,now the new at&t. (gotta say that or will get docked quality points) for the dork who said cingular bought out att doesnt` know their merger history. att bought out cingular but and kept the cingular name. the new merger is att buying out all of sbc. cingular isn`t going to change just the name. the contracts say att mobility not cingular.
