Ai tog. People are tracked in so many ways anyway that this is just opportunism ... hoping to score some money out of Google. I assume - to be consistent - that these people have no credit cards (use cash only) ... and how do you stop the cell networks from tracking your movements? The NSA - with the help of the British Government - is scanning all UK text and voice communications anyway (and the algorithms improve daily). If you want true privacy you have to get off the grid completely. Cookies are the tip of the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceberg.
I should have become a lawyer!! The development in lawsuits far outweigh the development in tech... or that's how it seems to me. Dot these people realise that cellphone companies also track your whereabouts without your concent?
Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.
They've already had to cough up 22 million (not much in the grand scheme of things) and yet they persist. I suppose it is the nature of their business but deliberately bypassing privacy features of a rival service deserves punishment.
I'm glad I'm done with google... I no longer have any association with them, I miss chrome though.
