Apple In Cahoots With Google And Facebook

Yup, according to The Verge anyway. Apparently, Apple is kicking themselves in the tuchas with their upcoming tracking blocking on Safari in macOS High Sierra.

You see, according to The Verge, it’s not gonna work like you’d think it’ll work.

As long as a cookie is associated with a website you’ve visited in the last 24 hours, Safari won’t change much — which gives popular sites like Facebook and the various Google services an easy way around the new restrictions.

I’m not a smart man, but I know what a cookie is. And yeah, cookies have evolved to include tracking cookies. But I’d be betting that Apple has figured out how to block tracking cookies or perhaps the tracking elements within cookies.

The only winners here are Apple and Apple’s customer’s privacy. With this and content blockers, Google and Fakebook are not winning. Whining perhaps, but not winning.

How you like them Apples!
