You’re all in on it!!
I had my own little conspiracy theory moment this morning on the train. I was watching this past Monday’s episode of Heroes on my iPhone. My DVR had to reboot itself right before the start of the show, so I missed the opening 6 minutes–which turned out to be sort of relevant. My time on the train isn’t that long, so I had to spread out the viewing over a few mornings. Yesterday morning, I had a few shoulder surfers peeking at my geeking, but today I was surrounded… by Sprint Instinct owners! I felt certain that if I let my guard down for a second, I’d look back at my iPhone and it would have been replaced by an Instinct.
I’m not sure the location-aware capabilities of the iPhone are a good thing. They found me all too easily and converged on my location. And since Sprint gets a roaming signal underground, they even knew which stations to use to intercept me! Still, I didn’t see any of them watching Heroes on their mobiles. And now that I’ve gotten my real-world advertisement, does that mean I can opt-out of commercials and product placement for next week’s episode?
