AT&T's Suspicious Attempt at Humor

Get your satire meters cranked up: AT&T has come up with an advertising effort designed to shame you into paying your bills online (thanks, Consumerist). The telecommunications company that got into hot water with warrantless wiretapping is pushing its online bill payments with a series of characters who are members of the Online Liberation Movement. Cute theme, with one super ironic character — Ms. Suspicious, who is worried about online privacy. Well, AT&T says she shouldn’t be because, with 128-bit encryption, her financial data is safe from prying eyes. Now if only her conversations were so secure.
