Gee how difficult is it for Apple to make a compelling platform for streaming music in the home?
Surely it must be easy to beat Sonos who are good but expensive, just make a cheaper version?
Oh wait, Apple and cheaper...

What I would also like out of the box, besides Ghostery, Noscript and Do not track, is a plugin than randomly changes a small property /feature of your browser to make it look like a different browser is at the same IP address. This to avoid identification based on your browsers footprint.
See https://panopticlick.eff.org/ for what I mean
If the browser omits for instance a random non-essential font, even if the IP address is the same it would look as if the IP could be a proxy for many different users
Just a question: when you logon to Google (mandatory at startup for Chrome), what does Google know of the user?
Does it for instance know all the URLs visited?
I do have an older Acer C7 and put Xubuntu on, it's brilliant. It easily outperforms my 4 year old laptop and for 200 USD can't fault it. I gave my tablet away..
I am not sure if this a humorous attempt by The Reg to show how silly the law can be.
Anyway, I bite: where is the option to NOT accept cookies and still continue the site?
Mind you I laud your extensive listing of what and how cookies are used. Let me reply in detail too, and I think most privacy minded people will make similar choice as me:
1 id Doubleclick ID ALWAYS BLOCK
2 sc Session Count ALWAYS BLOCK
3 c Visited Channels ALWAYS BLOCK
4 s Account Login OK but WHY a year? why not a session cookie?
5 eucookie EU Cookie Consent Useless if you can't say no
6 voted polls Voted Polls No fan but understand its use
7 v Version ALWAYS BLOCK
7 td Traffic Driver ALWAYS BLOCK
9 cid Campaign ID OK
10 forum_sort Per topic user sort order preference OK
11 sl Lite Account login OK
basically: session cookies ok, any other cookie: RUBBISH
I have changed my cookie settings for this site now.
