Remember Intelius, the company that was making a giant directory of unlisted cellphone numbers that you could search (and pay money for)? They're changing the project after the huge negative response from consumers and the media. Hit the jump for their own reasons why they made the directory in the first place and why they're dropping the directory part and just focusing on the "Caller ID" service. This allows you to plug in a number and get information about that number. Not quite as privacy-invading as a gigantic browsable database, which is good.
