+ - Google Settles Over Circumventing Safari's Privacy Settings->

Submitted by Slashbots
Slashbots (2681871) writes "Google has settled with FTC for nearly $22.5 million over its bypassing of Apple's Safari browser privacy settings. Google, the largest settlement with FTC over privacy related charges ever. By abusing privacy hole in Safari, Google circumvented user settings to show them advertising and track the users, "Safari, unlike other browsers, blocks cookies from ad networks like Google’s. But because of a loophole, Google had been able to avoid the block, as researchers discovered in February. It installed cookies and tracked Safari users across the Web to show them personalized ads"."

Eh, the current CEO was running day to day operations long before Jobs died. Jobs only went for the presentations. Likewise, Apple's products have only improved and have introduced major new features. I'm not even a long time Apple user but once I tried the products they blow me like a 5 dollar hooker. Why 5 dollar hooker? Because she needs the money more than billion dollar hooker. Personal experience, cheap hookers are always better.
