AT&T Verizon gum vote

Verizon versus AT&T.

Looks like a couple of people changed their mind post-vote, or perhaps there’s an AT&T gum squad patrolling Manhattan.

A smart way to express dissatisfaction! The results may be slightly biased though, much in the same way shoppers are steered towards eye level products on grocery shelves, they may be more inclined to reach out and touch something at arms length, rather than exert the extra effort to bend down to Verizon.

Hi Stefan, you can find the location on Michael’s post:

He’s included an updated photo of the poster, four days after this shot was taken.

Murray, you’re spot on. It’d be a fairer vote if the logos were side-by-side, rather than forcing the “chewer” to stoop for Verizon.

@Murray – I like how you’re able to read through the lines, but I would more characterize it as tricking clients to bend over. The industry is built on deceptive practices.
