    We've been hearing a lot of buzz from those in the wireless world that T-Mobile employees are dreading the day their company is finally acquired by AT&T and they start reporting for work at the Death Star. But while most of T-Mobile's 38,000 staffers have been reluctant to say anything bad publicly about their future overlords, one employee pulled no punches in detailing their feelings about the merger.

    Referring to a statement on the company's intraweb clarifying that the sale to AT&T should be thought of as an "acquisition" as opposed to a "merger," the employee tells SeattlePI.com:

    "This means that technically we're being absorbed by AT&T... In reality, it's more like a car-jacking. AT&T will strip us for 'parts' (spectrum, towers, customers) and throw the drivers (employees) to the curb... After all, when you steal a car, you don't need the driver anymore."
