Re: Tin foil hat time

Also, an internet connected fridge could display up-to-date cooking recipes based upon (what it thinks is) the contents of your fridge - either because the fridge is designed so that certain food items sit in specific spots with pressure sensors and/or because it has kept a record of the food you have ordered on-line e.g. by sensing milk, eggs and cheese, and by knowing that you recently ordered some Stilton it shows you a recipe for a Stilton omelette.

"Build in as many trackers as you like, I'll use NoScript and Ghostery and DoNotTrack and Adblock Plus and Flashblock and Ref Control and Beef Taco and any other software I like because I don't want someone looking over my shoulder every time I go browsing on the web!"

Unfortunately ADP has apparently succumbed to the almighty dollar of Google adverts:
