Wireless carriers and the federal government are launching a system to automatically warn people of dangerous weather and other emergencies via a special type of text messaging to cellphones. And if you like this, you're a schmuck.
The Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) service, which begins this month, is free, and consumers won't have to sign up. And like idiots, they think that's just swell. Mindless sheeple!
As with Facebook and Google: If you're not paying for it, you're not the customer. You're the product being sold.
