Watching You



"Fears have been stoked by the potential for Google to build up a detailed picture of someone’s behaviour by combining its records of web searches with the information from DoubleClick’s “cookies”, the software it places on users’ machines to track which sites they visit." -Google aims to run users’ careers and leisure

"There are simple and effective ways of masking a computer's IP address - and many websites are devoted to helping achieve that. And those cookies are easily dealt with by disabling them, deleting them on a regular basis or getting your computer to ask you each time one is about to be placed on its hard drive." http://comment.independent.co.uk/commentators/article2578442.ece
