    I can see craigslist implementing this in a heartbeat :

    Pretty amazing stuff. Although all the technology is there, the fact they have bundled it all into one is pretty astounding.

    Yeah this is pretty amazing. Just another hurdle in the craigslist game for sure. Coming soon to a city near you.

    This technology has been around. They can read flash cookies, the computer's cache, whether images have been disabled or enabled, whether cookies have been disabled or enabled, the screen resolution, browser versions, even the CPU's clock speed!

    Some corporation even claimed that they can find with a 99% accuracy rate who is behind their proxies based off their net behavior.

    The net was never made for privacy, it's amazing that it even worked back in the days.

    I knew they would come up with one eventually.... the idea that it detects/records the NIC is pretty out there. Hey, is there a way to spoof a NIC or do you have to buy new hardware?

    They're asking to get butt ********ed by lawyers. When I click remove all cookies if that
    cookie ain't gone they're hacking.
    Privacy laws will eat them alive.
    How do I get it? I could do with a million or so.
