Have you ever forgotten to reply to an email only to be cornered by the sender and interrogated as to why? On such a situation, it's easy to claim that you never received the email, which may or may not be true, but that little white lie may no longer work. There's a new snoop in town and she's called DidTheyReadIt. The bane of privacy advocates, DidTheyReadIt "promises to pull back the curtain on anyone hiding behind the common white lie, 'I never got your email.'" The problem is, the recipient will never know whether or not the sender used the service. It's done in total secret and the program even lets the sender know where the message was read. Of course this all means that someone has to develop a program that will trap the snoop and let the recipient know that he/she is being spyed on. May the wonders of technology never cease. Read all about it.
