How Accurate is Google's Big Brother?
I read this article today about how Google changed its privacy preferences so that it can be more accurate. It also cites how inaccurate it is, using the Ad Preferences as a litmus test. Thought I'd check it out and see.

Half credit here. I do like movies, and I'm often looking at them. Computer games too, although I'm not sure why so much focus on fighting games or cheats and hints. Also, WTF is up with the beauty/fitness and shopping categories? I shop online, but never for clothes. I don't even shop in the real world for clothes. And why pets? I don't have a pet. I've never looked for a pet.
About a B+ here. I'm actually 30, but I guess you're only as old as you search.
