If you thought cookies were a bad idea, take a look at this.
Make the most of your online anonymity whilst it still lasts.
It has, as the features list makes clear, great privacy-invading potential. The "sensors" it uses:
- can be individually customised for any web visitor;
- can collect information rather than return pre-downloaded data.
- can be reconfigured remotely;
- are difficult to detect and delete;
- can be used to block access to sites, documents, data, emails, etc., based on content,
- can be preferentially customised for each user.
and
The "sensor" program can monitor keystrokes and "the whole range of a user's internet usage," and it "can also be altered remotely, allowing it to be fine-tuned to the owner's or user's particular requirements."

What is it? What's the software' name?

It would be useful in the work environment to observe how employees conduct their day. Not looking forward to 'big brother' that's for sure. Is it a PC thing or Mac as well?

Ha ha haaa!
As long as this "technology" (a.k.a. big-brotherism) is not stored in our computer's ROM we will always have a way around it. Thank God for that.

Sure there is... don't go on the internet. But then THAT's a real viable solution, isn't it.:rolleyes:
