What he said about a browser solution is interesting though. My interpretation of what was said is that as long as a user had to opt in, ie the browser is initially set to not accept cookies, then the user could globally decide to accept them. If this is the case then Google could ask people to globally accept Analytics and Adsense cookies. The SERPS could have nag text with each listing if the user was in the EU and had not got the "I accept cookies" cookie set. The anlytics code could have a claok built in and a button inviting the user to set a default accept cookies, cookie. Also there would be nothing to stop all of the major services clubbing together and getting a default cookie set that applied to all services.
Have I misunderstood something?
