As long as companies are fined a million for every illegally gained billion these practices will never stop.

LOL! How much is Google worth? 200 billion? Reminds me of the vaccine companies. They make billions selling a vaccine that kills 1 in 1000 and they get a tiny little fine.

@ Spyder, it is easier to make up your own facts rather than use real ones isn't it. I'd like to know which vaccine kills .1% of everyone who takes it. How can you even compare an advertising browser cookie to a vaccine that kills you?! I can't even get my head around that.

The more money google makes, the more cool free stuff they give us. You know they have a self-driving car with 250,000 miles on it?
