The Daily Slash: November 30 2010

What sort of day begins with a possible verification of aliens and ends with fabulous Lamborghini wireless mouse? A day at SlashGear, of course! Philip Berne writes a lovely modern story about his wife’s birthday (happy birthday!), Google invites the media to a holiday party, and Samsung mobile display shows off a flexible 3D OLED concept at FPD International. Google gets investigated for squeezing, the Android Marketplace is fully content rated, and Verizon promises a spectacular reveal of their 4G LTE network via invite – secrets in store? Let’s hope! All this and MORE right freaking here on none other than The Daily Slash!

Looks like blogger “Marley” of ShutterMug found a simple way to prove Verizon to be amongst those evil companies who sell your information unless you tell them specifically you’d like them not to do that. Upon signing up with a friend to FiOs with Verizon recently, Marley was asked if they’d like to use “an alias for [their] listing.” Not soon after signing up, a common bit of snail-mail spam came through the mail with none other than that alias printed quite clearly. Shucks.
