"because getting a URL for example, is very different to looking at the content of a webpage."

Really Mr. coward? Because as far as I understand it, if I have a URL and the time stamp of when someone looked at it, I can get a pretty good idea what the user was looking at, depending on the specific website and how the content is loaded, no?

Just one of the ignorant items I see in this. It's becoming more and more clear that many of the individuals involved in silicon valley startups, and major tech companies, from Facebook and google all the way down to carrierIQ have a bizarre idea of what "privacy" really means...
