EU Cookie consent banners draw complaints

http://j.mp/Ws3TL9  (PC Pro UK)

    Web users are "unhappy" with the banners used to gain "implied
    consent" to meet new cookie laws, the Information Commissioner's
    Office has admitted in a report.  The data watchdog was tasked with
    enforcing an EU directive, which stated web users must be asked for
    consent before a site drops a tracking cookie on their computer.
