The world’s largest search engine Google might have to pay the Federal Trade Commission $10 million for breaching privacy on Apple’s Safari Internet browser. This fine, if applied, would be the first by the government for a violation of online privacy and is apparently based on an allegation that the search engine deceived the users by planting cookies on Safari, thus bypassing Apple software’s privacy settings.
Although there were many similar breaches before, FTC didn’t go that far to impose a fine that big. What appears to have got the Commission’s goat is that by bypassing the browser’s built-in privacy protections, search engine could lob targeted advertising at Apple users. In response, the company claimed that it never anticipated that would have happened and that Google was removing the files since discovering the problem. Nevertheless, the trouble wasn’t dealt with until it was discovered by Stanford researcher Jonathan Mayer. This makes the industry observers suspect that it was a cunning plan since the very beginning.

|raptor5 haha you keep to your pc then, oh have you got the latest avg or norton gay anti virus. hahaha apple only runs apple no excuses when shit goes wrong.|
Funny, since I switched to mac a few years back, I havent seen ONE 'error' message. See, NO EXCUSES NEEDED the shit runs proper. well most of the time heh heh
anyway, this article is about Apple sueing Google for being dodgy pricks. Nothing about apple being inferior or weak, your pc gets hacked by google too you muppet- its just microsoft does nothing about it. duh

|whatever mate .... doesn't change a thing ..... gotta get rid of bad apples ASAP.|
btw I haven't seen any "error" messages on my PC either ... dunno what crap you've used b4
anyway back to topic
targeted advertising that Google and pretty much all of the "big boys" are using "for our convenience"
is going further all the time so I can't see a reason why EU or US shouldn't benefit from money
we're earning for Google, even if it's a fine, and ...... don't forget where the crisis started last time.

|Apple is great if you like your computing stuck in the year 2006|
|i fix computers for a living and maybe 1 out of 100 are macs ..so based on my own statistics macs either rarely ever have problems or its simple enough ppl can fix themselves ..personally i need 2 mouse buttons to click.. 1 button just doesnt cut it for me so the hell with apple..get another mouse button|
|OR 99 out of 100 customers simply have actual PCs. *Grin*|
|Macfags generally take their Macs to Mac stores so they can be overcharged again. Also they have less than 10% market share.|

|First off i have to say I'm not an Apple oculists who loves anything "Apple" just cause Apple made it... I grew up on PC's and still use them.|
PC's are Great, But WINDOWS OS SUCKS!! Apple operating systems are the most stable and reliable operating systems, no crashing, and little to NO viruses. That's why all final film editing and music recording is done on Apple OS, No other Operating system is stable enough to handle the workload as fast and as stable. Granted 3D animation is mostly created on PC, but how? You need a whole rendering farm!(50-100 or more PC's all linked and working together to render the final graphics). Then it goes to a MAC to get final editing. And don't get me started on graphics!! PC 256 colors compared to Apples "Millions of colors" <Actual technical term. That is a small reason that graphic artists use Apples only to design(the big reason being stability). I have been in graphic Arts & Print Production for over 12 years and I prefer a mac any day over a PC when it comes to Graphic designing.
@ZettaByte You fix computers??? but you didn't know MACs have a second button on the mouse??????? Even though you can't see the second button, it is actually there... Just go to the Mouse settings and turn on "secondary button"!!
|Those who complain about a MAC obviously have no idea about them. I have never had any errors with this iMac, unlike a windows pc where the operating system eats too much RAM and can rarely perform multiple tasks. Stuck in 2006??? if that were true then windows pc's are stuck in 1800|

|i think windowns os is good for me . i seen them on government offices and business also one of my favorite things u can build your pc.can u build a mac? only thing mac has is good eye candy|
|America uses Mac, UK are way behind. Macs are expensive but they are high quality and Apple are way above Microsoft in company value. Don't forget where windows came from and thanks to xerox Apple Macintosh was born, then Bill Gates stole the OS for windows from the Apple II when Steve Jobs lent him the prototype. To make a PC faster than a Mac would cost way more than buying a Mac. And how many times do you have to reboot a windows pc after updates, only to wait 20 mins or more for the system to configure updates? Mac updates install and don't slow the Mac down and rarely require a restart, but when they do, its just a restart, no config updates screen|
|@ ZettaByte - ever heard of a Trackpad?|
|Anything that is bad that happens to Google I am behind 100% They are a hypocrites and dictators, that need to be taken down a peg or 10!|

|MEOWS SHAKES TAIL AND PEES ON MAC!!!!!!!!|
|Lot's of Apple and Microsoft fanboys here. Got nothing better to do right?|
First of all, Apple is not the one who discovered it and they are not the one penalizing google.
Secondly, It doesn't matter what you use as long as you use it properly and it lets you get the job done. I prefer windows 7 over Mac not because Mac sucks, it is just too expensive for what it's worth. I can assemble a PC with the same specs or even better on a lesser budget. I value customization not just the os but the hardware as well so for me that's a big plus for windows or even other unix/linux os. I have never run into errors and viruses because I don't do stupid stuff to make my pc unstable.
