So apparently there is a company in the UK claiming to make custom phones with internals that you choose (that are compatible). The website has only a few working webpages but the important ones are:

Intro Page
"Ever wanted to build your own customized smartphone by selecting your own internal parts? Now, you can! DylRicho.com is proud to introduce the world's first fully-customizable smartphone, the INFINITUS™; coming soon!"

INFINITUS™ U
Chipset
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Prime MSM8974
  • Quad-core
  • Cortex-A15
  • Qualcomm Krait @ 2.50GHz
  • Qualcomm Adreno 320 graphics

I remember hearing (or clicking the ad) about a phone that was completely Linux driven and the OS can be used on any hardware combination. It wasn't Linux, and frankly I don't remember what it was called. (I do remember their color scheme was orange.) I wonder if they're still around. This was around 2006 or so.

Nothing blew up on my end and most sites will use offline content (aka cookies)

when you click on the home page it tells you that the site uses cookies, cant imagine they would advertise it if it i was malicious.

Not sure why a site would be prompting for 'storing data on your computer for off-line use". It could simply be for Flash or HTML5 items... or it could be something bad. Dunno

<edited> More than likely it's what the Neumorator said. Can't you do a site search on Symantec's (and others I'm sure) website?

Is it me or is every major website out there telling you they use cookies? Wasn't it well known at least 10 years ago?

I think that was well known even 15 years ago, but with the Facebook (persistant past logout) tracking cookie freakout, and the time when Google used a 'form submit' to force-set cookies on browsers set to "Do Not Track", some sites try to tread carefully in that regard now and not have some paranoid user come after them

To the paranoid, they should probably know about this: evercookie - virtually irrevocable persistent cookies

Chances are, most if not all of the paranoid already have cookies of this sort on their system since this technique was published some time back. If someone or some company/organization really wants to track you, they already are and good luck getting rid of it.

- Storing cookies in RGB values of auto-generated, force-cached PNGs using HTML5 Canvas tag to read pixels (cookies) back out
Woah! Good one

Haven't heard of the Evercookie project, but i have come across someone talking about cookies coming back in IE after they have been deleted and the person being told to just download Chrome and go from there... must have been that, or another similar script...


Now back to the topic, that sounds like an electronics prototyping shop type business, trying to diversify their client base a bit. Nice find!
...or maybe a guy who works at one of those places, and trying to find his own clients... in any case he hasn't been paying attention to his half-built site...

They are telling you they use cookies because a recent change in data handling laws means they must give you the option.

All I will say, is you would be surprised by what people don't know and think they know, and I get to talk to them every day.

Meh. Stuff like cookies are common. Some of us don't care to meticulously manage site tracking. Regularly whatever warning shouldn't come up, but since you're using something to one way or another show the site's actions, of course you get the warning and most of us don't.

Anyway, I don't think people want to "hack" into your computer. I do get the odd firewall warning once in a while, but it's not like the entire internet is after you. They're more likely to social engineer you into downloading something.
