Cross-browser fingerprinting test 2.0 While we browse the web, most web pages have an interest in observing our behaviour in order to achieve certain business benefits. Read more » For example, they would like to know what kind of content the visitor is interested in, and, more specifically, what to recommend to a user who has already downloaded certain page(s) (e.g. article(s)). Therefore, vaguely knowing users’ areas of interest is often insufficient; most web pages will be interested in the entire course of a visit, and, in the case of returning visitors, they want to know the whole browsing history, too. In order to pull this off, the web server needs to store a personal 'file' about each user, and must be able to identify returning visitors.However, there are certain technical restrictions to such activities, and therefore newer and newer techniques are invented to identify and profile users. For some of these – such as web bugs – it is indispensable to store an identifier on the user’s computer.
PULP-O-MIZER: the custom pulp magazine cover generator When you purchase your custom pulp magazine cover on a printed product, the reliable Pulp-O-Mizer cranks it up to high gear and - after a few seconds of groaning and sputtering - it spits out a high resolution image at (or even over) 300 pixels to the inch. The image is immediately transmitted across the sub aetheric waves, and, well! That's when things really get interesting.

When your order arrives at our hidden facility these henchpersons burst into action: the presses fly, the hamster wheels spin, the Interociter... well... we think it interocirates, sort of, and when all's done a high quality Pulp-O-Mized product flies out of its mysterious mechanism and is swept up, before it can escape, by the unflinching claws of our own patented Ship-O-Matic. But even now, the adventure has barely begun!
