  • Google Tracked iPhones, Bypassing Apple Browser Privacy Settings – WSJ.com

    Lots of commotion over Friday's wall street journal report that Google and other advertisers were circumventing Safari's privacy settings on mobile devices and computers. After being contacted by WSJ, Google disabled its code. Basically this means that Google “hacked” safari to track users. This doesn't bode well for Google and people are already talking about lawsuits, especially since Google had said that Safari allowed private browsing (on a site that has since had the language removed.)
