Google Toolbar Tracks When “Disabled”

January 26, 2010

It seems that Google’s toolbar tracks even those users who specifically disable the toolbar, a step many take to ensure that they’re not being tracked.

Google’s “Do No Evil” commandment is being stretched a little if word from security expert Ben Edelman is true. According to an incredibly detailed posting on Edelman’s own blog about the topic, it seems as though users who decide that they’d rather not have their browsing habits tracked by Google, and then specifically go on to disable the Google Toolbar, are often still being tracked.



Fugitive Provides Facebook Fan Page

December 29, 2009

An escaped convict by the name of Craig “Lazie” Lynch has created his own Facebook fan page for those who wish to follow his exploits and reasoning.

Word comes via the Register that the convict absconded when he was allowed out of prison as part of a day release program. Since then, he’s set up a Facebook profile for those who have an interest in hearing what he has to say about his escape, what he’s eating and just what he’s been doing over the course of his run from the law.


Product Spotlight – Roccat Kone

October 8, 2009

Good afternoon all, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the way we run on the blog, every Thursday we put up a Product Spotlight post, which basically amounts to a “staff pick.” This is basically just a space for those of us working at Komplett to say, “This is a piece of hardware we really like,” and pass that on to you guys.

This week’s spotlit product is Roccat’s Kone. Roccat is a little unusual in that it’s a gaming hardware manufacturer that makes some very high quality kit without getting into the kind of territory pricewise that a lot of gaming specific hardware can end up in. The Kone is a perfect example of that philosophy, it’s a gaming mouse that boasts a 3200 DPI resolution, with a solid body and a comfortable grip, but it won’t break the bank at €65.
