Of course they'd create this in China, lol. Stuff like this shows why ad blockers aren't such a bad idea after all.
Another of the many good reasons to block ads online.
This is a little dirty. But there are much worse systems out there, like the automatic geolocation recording that cellphone providers perform.
Yeah, and unlike malicious/annoying ads, these other methods get little to no publicity. Instead millions are being watched/tracked without the slightest clue.
Now, I love ABP even more...
Agreed. Even though it is necessary for that geolocation to take place (so the towers can place/connect the call) they should allow you to opt-in to having it removed every 'X' minutes or so. The other scary part is that based on WiFi location I can pinpoint my ipad or ipod touch to my street even though I bought this router a month ago :S I am glad to disable location as much as possible.
