Bob Dykes abandons privacy invader NebuAd for books cooker VerifoneBob Dykes, the founder and chairman at ad targeting company NebuAd, has left his position as CEO and signed up as the new CFO at Verifone. NebuAd has raised the ire of privacy advocates by offering a service which monitors an individual's Web surfing habits by looking at the content of individual packets of data to better target advertising — a practice which is currently under congressional investigation. Verifone, which provides automated payment technology, recently let go of its old CFO, Barry Zwarenstein, after the publicly traded company wiped out $70 million in profits in restated financials. No rest for the wickedly wealthy, I guess. (Photo by AP/Paul Sakuma)
