For example, I use a site called movielink.com, which gives you movie times at nearby theaters. The first time I visited the site, I typed in my zip code to let them know where I was. Now, when I log onto the site, the site automatically knows that I am in the Lucerne Valley area because it reads the zip code from the cookie stored on my computer. That saves me from having to login multiple times and from having to enter my interests multiple times. That saves me time.
