It's been a rough week for Ma Bell. First its prized turkey jumps ship to another carrier, then that turkey takes flight, breaking Verizon sales records and already accounting for 3% of U.S. iPhone data traffic. In an attempt to show some love to those costumers that decided to stay the course and suffer stay with AT&T, it's decided to give its loyal users 1000 free minutes so they could, you know, call people, and what not. Here's the thing: No one talks on the phone anymore. In 2011, grandmas are texting with the best of 'em. If AT&T really wanted to show its customers some love, it should have doled out some bandwidth. We'll take 2GBs, thanks.
