I'm Pacific Standard Time, 12:10pm. On Fox News I just saw Google has been slapped $22.5 Million to be paid to the FTC for violating privacy settings. Apparently, Google Buzz was using some "well-known, tactic to bypass the strong default cookie settings on Apple's Safari browser". Ryan Singel, Threat Level; Privacy, Crime and Security Online. I found this just now on wired.c0m. Thought I would share this and believe BHLounge is correct place for this post.
