»venturebeat.com/2013/04/27/track···n-maybe/ from »www.hardocp.com/news/2013/04/28/···years63/

"If you are one of the many people horrified about the privacy-invading nature of the tracking cookie, her’s some solace: It may not have long to live.

According to Paul Cimino, vice president at ad marketplace Brilig, the tracking cookie has, at most, five years of life left..."

Prove it. :P

Everyone gets a spy drone to track them.

Perhaps Mr Cimino thinks, that in 5 years everyone will use Chrome browser only, which always makes SSL connections directly to Google farm of servers (74.125.224.x), reporting to them what everyone does with it on the Internet without the need of any tracking cookies? Not so fast, Mr Cimino. People will use other browsers too

Isn't it already "dead" so to speak, if one doesn't allow it?

And in related news, burglary crowbars, lock-picks, and slide-hammer pullers have, at most, six years of life left, according to (name redacted), a former professional burglar.

That's nice Cimino. But I am not sure you speak for the entire industry. And I can't help but notice that a little while ago web advertisers lost their shit, when Microsoft decided to set the default setting of IE to requiring "opt in" for tracking.

Fact is, your web browser supplies a wealth of information to every web site you visit, which can be used to track your actions online -- without relying on cookies.

Behavioral tracking is also another method.

And probably many more methods I haven't mentioned.

Cookies help, but they are definitely not the be-all-and-end-all of internet tracking, no way.

+1. Just as there's layered security, there's layered tracking. Cookies are just one of the possible layers.

When we finally convert to a cashless society and all data is stored in the cloud at data centers that are secured and guarded 24/7 by security teams, what use will all those burglary tools be?

For breaking into homes, cars, and businesses to steal all those pricey interactive devices used to communicate with the cloud...
