Can Google Guess Your Age?

With the big to-do about Google’s new privacy policy, a new game has emerged — what can google infer about your browsing habits? Can they guess your age and gender?

Did Google guess right for me? No.

It could be that Google is assigning demographic age categories based on interest, which might be easier to do than finding outliers like me. Maybe I do have the preferences of a 65 year old man. UPDATE: A computer I’ve used a lot longer had a cookie that got my age range correct, but the category range was largely unchanged.
