Information is the only way forward for the major players online. Getting data to identify a user is the most critical information to sustaining a competitive advantage.

It is now all about serving the most relevant information to a user in the fastest way. 90% of this is discovered by basic attribute of a visitor and there prefences.

Soooooooo why don't they just ask? Give users the choice. Collecting data on the sly is not the way to do this. I think that approach is going to bite back at them one of these days.

I was just wondering how long Google, the great pro-privacy icon, could hold out while its main competitors forged ahead with extreme data gathering and analysis.

Well, at least they are admitting it now. Its funny, who would have ever thought google would try to tell us what to do today.
