On the Internet? Ze Borg Microsoft is Vatching You and Knows Who You Are

Sheesh. I thought I was annoyed before by Microsoft's Phishing filter on websites that, on simple entry form boxes, can popup and warn people that a site is probably phishing for their personal info (then, ironically, in order to turn it off, Microsoft wants... your personal info-bleh). But I see now that, learning from our own intrusive government, MS has been researching how to spy on us as we are on the internet, and can tell our age 60 percent of the time and our gender 80 percent of the time. Why? The better to advertise to us (YOU CANNOT ESCAPE BEING A CONSUMER-YOU ARE NOT A PERSON)

Demographic information is usually not easy to obtain," the researchers said. "Internet users are reluctant to expose this kind of personal data to public.

Yeah. There's a reason for this. Maybe I don't WANT Microsoft and other vendors to be constantly spying and collecting data on me so that they can sell me chit.

The alternative way to predict users' demographic information is then of great interest." The Microsoft researchers said such predictions could be used to better personalize Web applications and fine-tune online advertising

I don't know how this research was conducted but it is offensive.
