Loaded: Google getting around IE privacy settings?

2:51 /

Pinterest allows Web sites to opt out of being pinned, a cheaper Nook is now available, and Microsoft says Google isn't following privacy rules in Internet Explorer.

It's Tuesday February 21st, 2012. I'm Virgie Carey on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. Microsoft says Google is not playing nice of privacy preferences and it's finding ways to avoid following a users privacy setting in Internet Explorer browsers. This reveal comes days after the Wallstreet Journal reported that Google found a way to get around privacy settings in Apple Safari web browsers so they can make money of ad tracking cookies. Days after that report, Microsoft said that Google was also (skirting?) it's browser rules and using code that could change or track user's web habits with cookies even if the user specified in setting that they did not want to be tracked. Google responded saying that it was impractical to comply with Microsoft's requests while providing modern web functionality. Interest of virtual pinboard website is the hot new social network but as it grows it's record speed it's making adjustments to iron out potential kinks, kinks like copyright log. The site which allows users to post school photos and articles, they find across the web has been criticized as possibly violating copyright logs because user can share images they don't have the rights to. So this week websites can now avoid having their link shared on interest if they so wish. Of course many website will wanna continue to ride that interest traffic wave, interest drive so much traffic to other websites. One analyst group says it brings in the same amount of traffic as Twitter. Everyday our text lifestyle seems to get more cloudy when it comes to online storage that is. Microsoft has evolving it's cloud storage service called Sky Drive to be a desktop app within the new Windows 8 operating system. Sky Drive is Microsoft's answer to Apple's iCloud service. Sky Drive will set remote files from the web so users can access files while moving between computers. Barnes & Noble heat up the competition between Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet. Barnes & Noble introduced a cheaper version of its new Nook tablet with less memory putting it at the same price as the Fire, $199. The showdown between these reader tablets is now on even battleground for hardware, both of the same size, both have 8 Gig storage, the same RAM, even the same processing power but it comes down (enough?) for consumers is preference with the case design, screen display, software features and media content but if you're aware the feud at invested in the other 7-inch tablet last year, the Blackberry playbook, an update is finally available. The Playbook OS 2.0 included features like a standalone e-mail client with a unified inbox, a built-in calendar and an application for contacts. The only way to access e-mail calendars and contacts in that previous version was to link it with an existing Blackberry phone. If it has standalone e-mail feature to begin with, the Playbook would have likely seem more success. So is your headlines for today. I'm Virgie Carey for CNET.com and you just been loaded
