Somehow people are outfitted with total full-realism augmented reality as a way of putting cameras everywhere and somehow everyone is surprised when they are somehow hacked.

It might have been good, but it requires too much of a suspension of disbelief and it's confusing; not recommended.

An personal information collection website which rewards with a trickle of money.

I found surveys which were broken, offers which were suspect, items which wanted my credit card information or to install random software. Overall, the hype that others give this website makes me think less of humanity.

A girl, engineered to be a killer, flees her keepers, but as a woman she pursues general vigilante justice by helping a crime-fighting genius.

Privoxy is a non-caching web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for enhancing privacy, modifying web page data and HTTP headers, controlling access, and removing ads and other obnoxious Internet junk.

I experimented with cliget during my replacing web browser components project. I was interested in replacing Greasemonkey and Stylish, Adblock (now I use Adblock Latitude), Change Referer Button, etc. While I did get it working, I didn't stick with it.
