These are ginger cookies made by my daughter. They were delicious. I like these cookies.... nom nom.
It's the other sort of cookie that I have a problem with. I was looking to buy a flash unit for my camera and searched various sites for makes and prices.
When I had finished doing this and went onto other unrelated sites I noticed that the embedded adverts in web pages kept offering flash units.
I thought this was a coincidence until it kept happening, and I realised that my internet browser was storing cookies of my searches which could be used by other web sites to offer me similar products.
I don't know about anyone else but I find that blatant flouting of my privacy a bit unsettling - particularly as the third party cookie setting is set to 'on' as a default on my browser, so I have to elect NOT to send my information to web sites.
I initially thought that this technology would improve my browsing experience, but I find it a bit spooky, and can't help thinking that it is more in the interests of the commercial web site, to help them sell more product, than actually improving my web experience.
