It's not spying anymore, it is surveillance. Oh wait...this is about the UK, maybe it is spying over there yet.

It's not spying.
It's demographic research for targeted marketing.
I have friends that have an Alexa in their house (cue danger music)
They leave it off most of the time. It was off, and over lunch they were having a discussion about calling a few roofing companies to get estimates on replacing the roof on their house. Several hours later hubby goes online to check his email and a bunch of ads for local roofers pop up.

I knew all about this back in the 90's

Nearly 4am here in the UK so im thinking a little crazy right now. Buttttt who doesn't.
I'd like to hear people's opinions on whether they do it dont believe in technologies spying on us. Such as phome's listening to conversations etc.
Feel free to share experiences (if you have had any).
This is mainly a post for those that don't believe that happens, as I want to hear their reasoning behind this
And yes i do realise this is ATS and 90% of us are conspiracy theorists.
But they still doesnt stop me from trying to debate said topic.

I am more concerend with commercial spying. Smartphone apps, Google, Apple etc. They will have cradle to grave profiles on us. That's crap.
