Phorm

I am curious as to the response to Phorm ( [URL removed] ).

Here we have a cookie that tracks the user's activity and then generates custom advertisements based on that movement. Sounds innocent enough to some and some companies (Virgin to name one) have already signed onto the service.

However we already have these types of cookies in net-land, we call them spybots.

So why oh why, are companies like Symantec not immediately adding them to the list for spyware?

Myself owning three licenses for Norton, am deeply troubled by this wait and see method and will factor that into my purchasing choice.

Just trying to get the word out cause my search on the forum didn't turn up anything about Phorm.

Re: Phorm

Hi

Thanx for the link.

I must admit I never heard of it before. I will take a look at it
