Any guess on the odds of our someday living in a world where a company itself notifies a customer when there's a better deal for them, ending with “Would you like is to make that switch right now?”

Reminds me, though, that I've a bin of old phones, modems, and routers. Never got rid of them for fearing there being PII in/on them... it's like I need a vat of sulfuric acid....
You can solve that annoyance by accepting that 'marketing' and 'lying' are synonyms....
