Having some painting done inside the house and Wifey started talking to me about some curtains in the living room.
I was here on ATS listening to about 30% of what she was saying about them...until she asked me to start measuring some windows.
This was yesterday evening.
This morning...I turn into ATS over my morning java...sign on to ATS...and Amazon CURTAIN deals immediately pop up on my page.
I ask the little woman if she was looking for curtains online (I sure wasn't)...and she said she hadn't.
ATS...if you're listening...We decided we don't want any f**king CURTAINS.
Alexa has radar ears -- she can hear you fart a block away from home & pummel you with Beano ads.
Solution: Take a baseball bat to Alexa. Office Space style.

STILL MORE F'ING CURTAINS!
STOP!...They're dust collectors!
Which reminds me, I need to take down the thermal curtains in the bedroom today or tomorrow and wash them. They are indeed dust magnets, but they keep
the heat in the bedroom in the winter instead of dissipating out through the old-ass window panes. Pitfalls of renting there.
We don’t have an Alexa in our home and the same thing happens to us.
I was using my phone to search amazon looking for LED taillights for my truck.
Later that night I was using my iPad scrolling thru Facebook and LED taillight ads pop up.....hmm.
My wife says at work “a credit union” they will be talking about let’s say shopping at target and then target ads will show up on her phone. Not
an Apple phone either it’s an LG but some of the others have Apple.
I wonder what else the phone hears it shouldn’t.
I find it weird that so many years ago people were afraid of the government listening to their private conversations and now they will volunteer to
put a wire tap on their table....hey Siri!

For what its worth I use Mozilla Firefox when I log into ATS. I have the AD Blocker on and I get NO ads. I also do not trust Firefox so for my email,
eBay and PayPal I use the Internet Explorer browser software and I allow ads.
As far as your situation it could also be your smartphones listening in on you and then they make electronic contact with your IP internet service
provider to launch the ads.
Oh, and for the record based on my observations, Mozilla, Google and IE all communicate your on line searches to each other.
In this video that I just watched literally just now, there is a story about a woman who changed shampoo's and then was suddenly bombarded with
advertisements for baby products... to which she found out she was indeed pregnant.
Her smart devices knew that she was pregnant before she knew that she was pregnant!
More than that, the behavioral data algorithms are so individualized and personalized that the father, who was not informed of the pregnancy, was
suddenly bombarded with advertisements for baby products... so these algorithms predicted who the father was and targeted him as well, unique to this
young pregnant woman.
This professor says that the data being collected is not restricted to online tracking- it is offline as well, tracking our individual lives and
purchases and who we surround ourselves with and analyzing the tone in our voices during a walk in a park and etc. All in order to be able to predict
our moods, even effect our moods and target us based on our temporary fleeting daily to daily moods and circumstances so that we will be more
vulnerable to advertisements and purchase the products they want us to purchase and thus make the money they want to make.
