Top 10 Worst "Big Brother" Companies

Business Intelligence Lowdown reports on the top 10 anti-privacy companies. Here's the list:

10. Response Unlimited
9. LexisNexis
8. AOL
6. Yahoo!
5. Microsoft
4. Accenture
3. Acxiom
2. Google
1. ChoicePoint

See the article for details about how we're all getting pwned.

How to avoid such pwnage? One of the commentors of that article suggests using the TrackMeNot Firefox extension, which creates white noise search terms to hide your real search terms from MSN, Yahoo!, AOL and Google.
