    So VZ is adding a UID to every URL we visit with our devices while on their data network. It is unique to each of us and every website operator gets that identifier. It does not matter if you opt'd out of tracking with VZ, you still get it.

    I view this as a pretty big deal, please let them know you think so too. I have tweeted them pretty hard and will be calling them tonight.
