How Trustable Companies Use Customer Insight
It's a reasonable bet that very few customers would want to pay $25 a month for AOL's dial-up ISP subscription - a subscription they don't need and never use, and that they don't really know they're paying for. And most likely no one would actually want to incur NSF (insufficient funds) charges by accident. There may be times a person would choose to incur such fees, and (who knows?) some people might simply choose to pay for dial-up service just so they can say they do, but on the whole, we don't think we're going too far out on a limb by suggesting that these are not examples of companies proactively protecting their customers' interests.
