A little bit of everything, but only every now and then!

I'm a big fan of Google, but I'm a bigger fan of honesty. Google has many departments and offices and I just hope that this was a rogue programmer, believe me, they are out there!
In summary, iPhone users that opted out of being tracked were still being tracked by Google. http://9to5google.com/2012/02/17/google-allegedly-outsmarted-mobile-safari-to-force-ad-cookies-upon-ios-users/
It does very much seem that power corrupts. Ideally, the Google Programmer that found the floor would have not exploited it and would have informed Apple so they could Patch it. But on what planet would that ever happen! Are we too cut throat and will the nice guy ever win or is survival of the fittest making the nice guys extinct?
