Google Tracked iPhones, Bypassing Apple Browser Privacy Settings - WSJ.com
Click on ‘interactive graphics’ for a look at how Google intentionally circumvents users’ privacy settings to track their web activity. Immoral? Yes. “Profoundly immoral”? I guess that’s arguable, but is it possible anymore to hope that Google is inculcating respect for users across their organization? No. Update: Apparently Siegler and Battelle are taking the position that privacy settings should be treated as just a suggestion or disregarded entirely in the spirit of good old-fashioned ingenuity. Unbelievable.
