Illustration for article titled Operation Chokehold: A Plan to Destroy AT&T This Friday

This "Apple memo" that appeared mysteriously on Fake Steve Jobs' site plans an all-out iPhone attack on AT&T's network this Friday, December 18 at noon Pacific:

Subject: Operation Chokehold
On Friday, December 18, at noon Pacific time, we will attempt to overwhelm the AT&T data network and bring it to its knees. The goal is to have every iPhone user (or as many as we can) turn on a data intensive app and run that app for one solid hour. Send the message to AT&T that we are sick of their substandard network and sick of their abusive comments. The idea is we'll create a digital flash mob. We're calling it in Operation Chokehold. Join us and speak truth to power!


You could join this flashmob to bring AT&T "to its knees," but from what I can tell, it's already there. [Fake Steve]



Wireless connections are just too unreliable. What we really need is more wires. If only we could use a phone that were wired to the network, then we'd be really- ohhhhhhhhh, now I remember...

ATT's epic clever response to this will be: "Nice, now you fools don't have a network. We'll get this fixed up for you right away kind-of. By the way. You all owe us another $100 next month."
