    So this morning, I search for the BC - GT score game being played in Ireland on my PC.

    About a half hour ago, I'm watching the AHC channel and an ad is placed on the bottom of my TV screen advertising tickets to the BC-Clemson game in October. This can't be a coincidence, Cablevision must be tracking my searches.

    Yup. Your credit card, store loyalty card, online activity are all aggregated for marketing purposes. I'm in the biz. Lots of companies make a fortune packaging and reselling the info. Look at most any marketing/advertising article and you'll see major companies shifting budgets dramatically from traditional TV/print/radio to targeted digital.

    You should see what I've been goggling to find pictures because of this site

    If anyone looks at my history, they be like, What Da Fuck?

    Sometimes, it feels weird just typing shit like "humongous pussy pictures" in

    Or whatnot, you understand

    Maybe you could track a poster on a message board named 'Milky Discharge'.
    Seems nice enough / harmless on the surface, but his internet subject search and posting habits literally frighten me.

    Cookies. Internet has been doing it for years. This is just an extension of that.

    Google on Android phone does some wacky shit.

    Searched for an item on Google (browser) for staples.com using my android.
    A couple hours later I get an email from Staples about buying the item(i had searched for) in my gmail account.. :scratch:
    Titled: You came. You saw. Now Get it.

    Here is the Kicker.
    My Staples accounts are NOT the same email as my android xxx@gmail account.:wtf:
