    its weird when you search for something and then that somethings shows up in every banner ad...but that's just cookies.

    Then, I would walk around the city and I'd get a push notification making me aware of a sale on a nearby store... Now they're using your gps data. But in order to get the push notification, they have to be selling that data to the store offering the deal...

    Tonight, my wife and I were talking about televisions (specifically a 58" tv for $500) and laptops for the kids and Xbox 360 for the kids. We weren't surfing the web, we didn't buy one, we were just talking near our phones (which weren't being used).

    Now, banner ads for Xbox, laptops and that very television show up.

    Apple must be raking in the cash for data sales. Those mother fuckers

    The conspiracy aside, Apple's stock is actually low. A P/E under 12 for the world's biggest company with great growth? Come on. It should be at least 50% higher.

    Actually, fuckstick, I've never wondered.... I see iPhone and iPad everywhere I go. We use them for medical billing and charting, they use them in schools across yhe country. It's fairly obvious why their stock is so high. Not very bright are you?

    Then you're bright enough to know that data is more valuable than hardware. You don't think Google makes their money by selling you free internet searches and banner ads do you?

    Last year, I was driving home from work and received a text while stopped at a red light. The text said that a Dunkin Donuts is across the street and if I visit, AMEX will give me a $5 credit on my credit card. It was a weird feeling that I am being tracked, but I figured out that AMEX used my location data settings in my IPhone to make me the offer.

    Conclusion------Yes, I made a U-turn and got a large coffee coolada.....for free!

    Funny... Selling customer data appears to be glaringly absent from that diagram.

    Guess you really do think they make their money off of ad sales

    Have you seen the new HQ they're building? They're spending billions on it. They call it "the spaceship"
