A few weeks ago I wrote that friends in the Valley were just laughing at the idea of a company giving away advertiser supported VoIP, where the conversations are listened in on by some type of technology.
Now it seems Silicon Alley Insider Henry Blodgett has the same opinion as he riffs on a New York Times article about the company where they wrote:
The company’s model, of course, raises questions about the line between target advertising and violation of privacy. Consumer-brand companies are increasingly trying to use data about people to deliver different ads to them based on their demographics and behavior online.
The Associated Press also reports on the launch.
