Operation Chokehold aims to take down AT&T

No smartphone users in the world approved of AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega's remarks about iPhone users hogging the network's bandwidth. His statement permeated the hearts of every tech savvy, phone loving user worldwide.

Fake Steve Jobs (Dan Lyons), who many of you may follow, has decided to stick it to the man. He is calling on all iPhone users to bring AT&T's network to a halt. Here are the details:

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!

It is still undetermined which data intensive app will be summoned upon to bring AT&T to its knees, but Fake Steve is welcoming suggestions to help finalize his master plan. Assuming the operation is a success, bringing down AT&T's network could cause quite a commotion (let's hope it's able to come back up afterwards).

So spread the word, let every iPhone user know of Operation Chokehold, and hopefully, this will make AT&T realize that the problem lies with them and not with their loyal, paying, customers. Oh, and remember to have Wi-Fi turned off when you do it. You wouldn't want to waste your battery for no reason.

Will you join the cause?
