Really? I'm supposed to answer tracking questions before I can read a story online? LJW is not much fun anymore. Bye.

It takes less energy to just answer the questions. Get over it please. Sorry to see you go. I really think you could have been a worthwhile commentator if you could have got past that tracking. Please think and stay on.

It's not the "energy" required to answer the questions. It is what Google does with the information gleaned from the answers. Yes, there's a way to track back to you.

It's easy enough to click the first button; you don't even have to read the question.

The suspect vehicle, described as a blue Honda sedan, was first spotted by police about 12:37 p.m. today near 31st Street and Ousdahl Road speeding and driving recklessly, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman. The vehicle and its occupants were suspected of being involved in the theft of a cellphone at a Lawrence T-Mobile phone retailer at 1700 W 23rd St.

---or ... just ping the phone. LOL. speeding and risking lives, acting like fools, for the theft of a cell phone?

catch these people and charge them with first degree dumbth!

Good idea, but the phone would have to be activated first. Dunno if they had time to do that on the run :) As an old friend used to say, "You might outrun the cops, but you can't outrun Motorola"

No problem with "tracking" questions. Some newspapers do not allow you in until you register.

Otherwise, good job Eudora police in getting the license number.

Unless they were headed to Jack in the Box, I see no reason for this behavior.

Good job by Eudora PD! Get the license number; nail the perps later.

Good work by Lawrence PD, too. Once that adrenalin kicks in, it's gotta be near impossible to give up on a pursuit.

For everyone complaining about the survey questions: There are very easy ways around them and other ads, trackers, etc on websites. Doesn't take too much to find them.

Don't read the question, click the top answer and be done.

The car is probably stolen. The people driving it are probably long gone, with the phone.

Do everyone a favor. Lie on all your answers.

bearded_gnome 4 years, 10 months ago

nope, you sure can't outrun Motorola! LOL!

if stolen car, then pinging is sure a good idea. yeah, I wonder if the phone got activated.

Crime is a growing occupation in Lawrence,Kansas.

I use an iPad and haven't had any questions pop up from Google.

me too, do yourselves a favor folks, ditch those Windows systems....especially if you want less 'big brother' action

Hoots 4 years, 10 months ago

Oh, Apple keeps all kinds of records on you. They know more about you than you realize. Apple is just as Big Brother if not more so. They have been tracking users and I'll bet it goes much deeper. Don't fool yourself. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/109569-Apple-Sued-for-Invading-Privacy-by-Tracking-iPhone-Movements

I emailed a complaint on the questions and got this as part of the answer. "I will share with you that our mobile websites (http://m.ljworld.com and http://m.kusports.com) include most all of the content that our main websites have but do not include Google Surveys. Also, our KUsports.com app does not include Google Surveys."
