Do you ever feel watched? This June, moments after landing at Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport, I received a text message. I figured it was my brother or someone asking where I was. Instead, it was Rogers Wireless welcoming me to the United States. I used Cingular Wireless, the network with the fewest dropped calls, proudly for my stay, just like the people on TV. About 45 seconds after crossing over into Detroit last month, Rogers again sent me a text message indicating my position. Interestingly, no one else in the car received such a message.

Today, I noticed that the University of Toronto email system has a small icon signifying "personal" emails, whatever that means. The icon is a dark-skinned man with black hair and a goatee.
