Privacy Software Puts Internet Security Back in Your Hands
Here's one for you. YouPowered.com has developed MyOrby, an Internet privacy software that puts privacy back in your control. It tells you when you're being tracked and gives you the option to stop a site from tracking your activities. MyOrby learns your web surfing behavior - like playing games, downloading music, searching for things, sending emails, chatting, shopping - and uses what it learns to communicate with web sites you are in to find your most preferred experience in that site. It's a little too eerie for my tastes, but for those of you who enjoy the leading edge of technology and are concerned about privacy issues, this might be one to check out.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
