Apple acquires "identity pollution" patent

http://j.mp/NmsXx3  (The Atlantic)

  "First, it creates a fake identity (and, actually, many fake
   identities) for the user. Second, it takes elements of users' real
   identities -- interests and the like, based on browser history and
   cookies -- and merges those with elements that don't reflect the
   identity of the user, creating a close-but-not-quote shadow identity.
   Third, it creates actual network activity based on those false
   interest areas, spreading them across the network."
