Europe Goes After the Cookie
Why did this get to be such a big story?
Europe is not banning cookies. They are going to require that web site’s get permission before placing them on a user’s computer. This feature is already present in all major browsers. Europe would simply be making it more obvious for non-technical users to be aware of what’s going on.
Advertisers say it will kill their business.
Um… yeah.
I guess that means that advertisers cannot do business unless they are allowed to invisably track the movements of computer users.
Well kiss my fuzzy pink ass. When I download pictures of nekkid women, I ain;t sharing with anybody.
An educated consumer is an advertisers worst nightmare. If the consumer knows exactly what they want, and what is best, advertising would no longer make a significant difference.
The advertising companies should really stop worrying. People are fucking lazy and apathetic.
