Let’s get this out of the way: You have to be very careful when you pledge to Kickstarter. There are lots of projects out there that are either scams or are started by well intentioned entrepreneurs who simply don’t have the talent or experience to fulfill their promises. And of course, there are a lot of truly horrible Kickstarter ideas (I’ve written about them for laughs in the past) that mercifully never get funded. More →

A new study that looked into Facebook’s privacy practices in the European Union reveals that Facebook seemingly tracks everyone in the region, regardless of personal preferences. Whether you’re signed in to the service or not, and whether or not you have opted out of being tracked, a Facebook cookie with your name on it exists, and can be used to track your online activities.
