Default Doesn't it freak you out that

Pop up ads on websites now show you stuff that you recently searched for? I forgot what site I was on, but I was doing something and noticedan ad in the corner for drum heads. I thought, " wow, that's odd. How did this site know i played drums?" i see it more and more, it's both kinda neat, and a bit unsettling.....:)

Browsers now save your most visited pages, Whenever I go on sites I get CLEAR internet (my provider), 50cc scooters, Guitar Center and ZZounds.com haha

I run virus scans daily and all is clean. I assume the targeted advertising I get is from tracking cookies. I prefer getting drum ads to, say, insurance. Every now and then I do a clean out.

I use a free software called "AdBlock", no pop up ads, no advert on YouTube before a clip, no advert on any web pages, nothing, it's very cool...
Keep On Drumming
