    Is creeping me out. Today on my lunch break I stopped by the CVS for an item. I used my debit card and gave them my phone number for the "discount". 3 hours later on my work laptop and ad pops up for the product on sale at CVS. How the fuck does information spread so fast?

    I swear, it's not like I'm researching deodorant at work! This is almost an invasion of privacy!

    So, did they send you a 10% discount coupon for a case of Trojans?

    In the fine print of your bank's T&Cs they probably say they reserve the right to "share" (sell) your info to "relevant" merchants...if your phone # & email is tied to your debit card, and they have a share deal with CVS....then poof...you will get crap like that.

    It always gives me the creeps when I'm doing a google search on something insignificant (NOT porn) and see off to the side in an ad those shoes I was eyeballing on ebay days before with the caption ''still interested?". :eek:

    Company in Burlingame CA call Tele-apart...fucking guys have the SEO algorithm that Facebook is and had been trying to buy. I visited there last year and was mind blown on how much data they harvest and can zero in on ones life. kinda scary but unique to each individual. They are not a public company. Should they decided to go public. I would suggest on buying as much stock in that company as possible.

    The truth is you don't have any privacy.

    People waste far too much time worrying about the govt...if the nsa is interested in you then you have major problems and in all likelihood deserve their attention.

    What should concern people is that civilians can find out almost anything about you. Anyone with an interest in you personally is what you should worry about.



    Many people know about the spy software for smartphones. Most don't know physical access to your phone is not needed if the other person knows what they are doing.
