by Charles Duan

Nine lines of code could make Verizon's controversial user-tracking system a bit less invasive.

The text on the Privacy Policy Summary page, in bold letters right at the very top, could not be more clear: "Verizon is Committed to Protecting Your Privacy."

But that commitment is coming under challenge, in view of ongoing revelations about Verizon's "supercookie" program. The New York Times called it a "Threat to Privacy"; Wired went further, deeming it "a Privacy-Killing Machine."
