Apple implemented "do not track" on Safari, Google did an end run around it, the U.S. Attorneys General hauled them into court, and now Google is paying $17 - roughly the amount of money they earn in the time it takes them to write the check - to the states. Alexei Oreskovic, writing for Reuters:
The deal, announced Monday morning, ends a nearly two-year probe by the states into allegations that Google bypassed the privacy settings of customers using Apple Inc's Safari Web browser by placing "cookies" into the browser.
This follows the $22 million they agreed to pay the FTC back in August 2012 for the same thing. Wrists appropriately slapped?
