Saw this on some other forum before I was as techie as I am now and was like, huh?? How do they know all that information so well that they can display it in an image? :shock:
Now, I think it's pretty cool/awesome. :D
Neat way to raise awareness about Internet tracking.

(How can they display ISP in a "nice" form like that?)

Religion is not the opium of the masses. Daily life is the opium of the masses.

True religion, which dares to acknowledge death and challenge the way we live, is an attempt to wake up.

I get a sign (possibly with someone or something holding it) with text that goes by this template
Your IP is <x.x.x.x>! Your ISP is <internet provider name>.
You are running <OS> and using <browser>!
