Comment: opt-out (Score 1) 2

sadly, there is an opt-out, but it is cookie based!

in the " opt-out policy" they state that you can voluntarily opt out, but that since it is cookie based you will need to get a new cookie any time you update your computer, or browser, or flush your cookies...

problem is, my browser isn't phoning home! the web-engine in photoshop is! (embedded opera??)

so, hypothetically, even if i were to click "opt-out" in the safari, camino, firefox and wyzo, i have installed, and even if i did so for every user on the system, photoshop isn't reading those cookie lists. so it isn't going to stop calling home...

question: assuming i play along with this "opt-out", how do i ensure that PhotoShop even gets this "opt-out cookie"?

2) IF the answer is that i have to "get" the cookie in one browser, find that cookie data, manually extract the line from the data file, open a resource file packaged with photoshop, then manually insert the cookie data... no go, just plain unacceptable...

plan B)
set HOSTS file:
collect that data myself :P

Now allegations of user spying are getting louder, prompting Adobe Photoshop product manager John Nack to respond, though many remain unsatisfied with his explanation."
