And as far as I know ... there is nothing dangerous with cookies.
Cookies add effective, positive features to a website/browser experience.
The same thing for AJAX, JQuery and SESSIONS.
I wonder what they'll say when the internet begins controlling physical things:
Coming sometime this month ... an interesting, cheap method to connect physical
things with the internet and websites. This will use a "cloud". But it's basically
I/O electronics interfaced to the internet for less than $50.
The FlyPort has existed for some time now. Not quite as easy to set-up as the
new Imp will be, but people are using the internet (smart phones, iPad, iPhone, etc)
to control things all over the world. This is currently about $85 for a development kit.
Can you imagine the implications of this when used maliciously? Like an IED?
We (the world) will be walking around with handheld devices for a physically
controlled environment. Let's see what the EU law says about that.
We're talking about making REAL cookies, not just browser cookies.
