    Oh no, not again. Thanks for posting this Popowich. The article says Google PREF is one of the cookies they use - they probably use other companies' cookies as well. One thing we can do is to use a search engine like DuckDuckGo.com instead of Google search. DuckDuckGo says they don't store our searches, and they don't put cookies on our systems that I am aware of.
