This post to Corante by Dana Blankenhorn includes an image from the Motorola site. Dana used it to illustrate his article about their new Microsoft Window’s Mobile-based cell phone.

But the image was cookied by Motorola. When I opened the post in FeedDemon I got a cookie warning. This leads me to think that cookies are acceptable in at least some versions of RSS.

I’d be interested in knowing if people are starting to see cookies as a way of tracking RSS readership, much like they are used in e-mail newsletters. Since each feed is not unique, I guess that “single pixel gifs” or “web bugs” are not an effective tracking tool in this channel.
