Virginmedia has Phorm


BT, Carphone Warehouse and Virgin Media1 have got into bed with Phorm. They're going to give Phorm our browsing history. Yup, you heard me right, our ISP is going to give a third party access to our browsing history.

This is now being covered all over the place2 but this story in the New York Times is as good a starting point as any.

Won't say any more about this tonight, still recovering from yet another bloody migraine, but I can see me coming back to this later.

  1. Virgin Media being our primary ISP.
  2. Although not by The Register for some strange reason, despite several of us mailing them about it.
