Cingular and Deregulation – Ma Bell Lives!

AT&T back in 1984 was divided into 8 companies due to anti-trust and monopoly fears by the government.

Here’s a video that humorously explains the split and the reunion again:

  1. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can
    advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.
