When Will They Stop? Are you using Microsoft's XP family of products? If so you should know that it may be doing things behind your back. A 12 April article titled Win-XP Search Assistant silently downloads files is yet another of the growing reports of how the tagline, Where do you want to go today? is starting to look like I'll take you where I damn well please.

Microsoft isn't the only culprit. Consider the ramifications of Data Mineā€”Or Yours? by Diane Savage, then read World Without Secrets that Linda discussed in her last entry. That book has an associated web page from which you can download a sample chapter and read related articles.

The only reassuring news in the past week is an Associated Press article titled Web Group OKs Privacy Standards.
