Have a good idea (or even a somewhat daft marketing one) and it’s sure to be emulated. Hot on the heels of Telstra and Vodafone, Optus will now let you sign up for ‘smartphone updates’ without actually revealing what it is you’re signing up for.
Like the others, you’re not signing up to join a queue or anything; you’re just handing them your personal data — and probably bypassing all that nice do-not-call legislation as a side effect. (thanks Dan!) [Optus]
