I know it probably has something to do with cookies or the cache memory I don't know But I just logged back into DBS Talk and one of the sponsored items on the right hand of my screen on DbsTalk was from a company that I cut and and pasted a picture that I found using google picture search. I pasted the Picture on my FB page which I believe is linked to DBStalk. I just find it curious that a picture I basically stole was being targeted to me as a sponsor here.

Yeah one day I was looking for replacement cutter wheels for my key machine and when I got on here there was an ad about locksmith school. That's how google can offer us so much cool free stuff!

Google knows too much about us!

Between Google, open access to public records, smart phones, increasingly ubiquitous security (observation) cams and GPS, it is now possible to literally track a person over their entire lifetime, from birth to death and everywhere in between. So long, privacy -- Cya!
