Google Demographics Hilarity

I read technology news on Ars Technica and today, this little article caught my eye:

Now, I don't have any major problem with Google trying to narrow down my demographics using a cookie. In fact it led to a moment of comedy. It thought I was twice the age I actually am. People have been telling me for years I'm a grumpy old man and whilst I don't think 45-54 is old, it is one instance of computers getting it so wrong and so right at the same time.

Hehe, quite funny and interesting, yes they've got the info quite right, I'm a male, probably a drummer, I like rock, jazz and blues, Im between 45-54, BUT, heck! I don't listen to Worldmusic and Caribbean reggae, I don't know where they found that info in my cookies ;-))
