Google’s creepy invasion of privacy:

The search engine giant owes the public an apology for secretly tracking the browsing habits of Apple customers.

The search engine giant and some advertising agencies used a secret code to track the Web habits of users of Apple’s Safari browser on iPhones and computers by bypassing its privacy settings, the newspaper reported. Safari, the most popular program for mobile surfing, is designed to block such tracking by default.

Google stopped the tracking when questioned about the practice by the Wall Street Journal.
