Whoa! Is this internet creepiness or what?

  1. I guess there isn't a forum for general internet issues here, so...

    I normally live in New York, and use various computers there. Having travelled to a different city on the other side of the country, I checked my Hotmail account, then was doing some research on Bing. I just pulled up the main Bing site, you understand, no account.

    Well, Bing's drop-down, under the space for typing in searches automatically started showing subjects I'd searched A WEEK AGO IN NEW YORK.

    I can't believe this, and am totally disgusted. I assume the Bing site "talked" to the Hotmail site. Perhaps the trick would be to use Google with Hotmail, and Bing with Gmail. Perhaps I should start returning to non-tracking sites like Start Page and Duck Duck ...but they're just not as good.

    I've complained about this very thing. It is annoying and something I feel should not be allowed.
