Marketers have always wanted to track their customers' every move. Now, new scanning technologies linked to the Internet, may enable them to do so. Earlier this month ratings service Arbitron, Inc. and advertising specialty producer VNU disclosed that they have agreed to deploy during the next nine months a pilot project to collect multi-media purchase data from consumers. The pilot project, dubbed Project Apollo, will debut with a panel of more than 6,000 American households. It has been in the works for a year-and-a-half.
After reading you artical on tracking consummer online, well wake up, this is a new day, this sort of thing has been going on for some time now. As a consummer I am sick and tried of people like you, who think that it's ok. Well it's not on. What are cookies? If cookies where not doing the job they where designed for, and that is to track consummers and then sell that information to others, who then bombard your inbox with crap. I for one do not get any re-embursment, but the companys are using my name, my internet email address. What planet are you from? You see people like you do not do this sort of thing because you like it, but because you can make $$$$$$$$$$$ and that I think, makes you feel important, well it's only an illusion.
Happy landing on what ever planet your on, and stay away from Earth.
