Personal Info

I haven't used Internet Explorer for some time, and I probably won't be taking up their offer of an upgrade to IE8, in spite of its claim in this video that IE8 blocks 3 million online threats a day.

In this video (one of several) IE opened two different storefronts, one as a bank, one as a genealogical site, and enticed a number of New Yorkers into giving all sorts of personal information. The idea was that if you trusted someone face-to-face enough to give them personal info, then it's likely you're not being particularly careful online.

Check out what people handed over without any concern....
