Backtrack

Following up on yesterday’s post, apparently Verizon's reconsidered their online payment charge. CNN reports:

Verizon Wireless said it will scrap a proposed $2 fee for one-time online or telephone payments, citing “customer feedback.”

Like Ben said1, I’m curious as to exactly what kind of customer feedback they thought they’d receive upon news of the charge. Definitely not joy. Then again, as Harry McCracken tweeted: [tweet https://twitter.com/harrymccracken/status/152849909308063744 align=’center’] I'm sure they will. Anything to keep their foie gras on the table every night.
