yes, a succinct metaphor but i have adapted to only looking forward. The problem, as many of us know, is that AT&T can't be trusted for any reason. They will always be inept about rolling out big services and I was in the business, I know why. They have no choice and there is so much money now in entertainment services and most of the marketing and packaging are inept. ARe you impressed with cable? Sports? Movies? By allowing these low brows decide what "should" sell to our public, we have lost ground and soon we should be able to dial everything through one pipe, eliminating strata of bell services. Maybe AKAM can buy ATT&T which would be a good thing.
