    And maybe sometimes you might not want to buy.......in the near future. Sunday at Church we were discussing some problems with the cemetery. On the way home DW and I were talking and made the comment about how it might just be easier to be cremated. When we got home and booted up FB all of a sudden an ad for a crematorium popped up in my feed. Coincidence??? We both have "smart phones" but now I'm wondering if they might be to smart.

    Not a coincidence. Worse than telemarketers calling me during dinner. Perfectly capable of finding siding or windows on my own. Or in your case, cremation.

    What really pisses me off with this method or technique is that they assume you are so stupid you couldn't possibly make a proper decision without their help. Think again. Lol.

    @RowdyRay but I'm not sure it was targeted. I hadn't searched the internet for anything, no inquires anywhere, web browsers off on our phones. So if it wasn't coincidental then I'm really spooked now.

    So wait, did you 'comment' on it or were just talking in the car?? Maybe you were in the Twilight Zone, better hope Rod Serling's ghost wasn't riding in the back seat.

    The more cheezy & crappy a product is, the more the peeps selling the product seem to work the SEO to make sure their crap rises to the top of a search. Those scammers and spammers are busy little bees.

    No comments, no searching, looking, no nothing. We were in the car driving home and made the comment. 30 mins later the ad popped up on FB feed. I know Google now (on phone) listens for voice commands, but now I'm wondering if its listening to more.

    Doo doo, doo doo...

    I didn't know Google 'listens' to voice commands on a smart phone; maybe it was still somehow functioning?? Glad I just have home phone(s) and a stupid phone that can barely text much less anything else.

    Morning all, very overcast here again so not up to much once I do my X-T3s FW update.
    Good to see that Notre Dame can be saved as they have 100s of millions already donated to rebuild it once the fire has been put out.

    I regularly clear cookies and that seems to get rid of some of the annoyances. I might have to sign on to sites, again, but that's OK. An ad blocker also gets rid of some.
