Default Re: On-Line Shopping Is Getting Very Astute

So hang on let me get this right, I am being targeted , profiled and having my habits documented just in case i am a security risk, then bombarded with history based advertising that i pay no attention to so the future will be safe from my outdated and irrelevant life lesson based wisdom. Wow!. Here's a pic of a cool kit just to keep things drum related. and don't forget, just because you are not paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you..

Pretty much got it in one.

Sounds mad. It is mad. Unfortunately, no matter how irrelevant you think you might be, it's happening.

Does this mean that I can e.g. just post a pic of the same kit a few times and then the process will simply skip a step and that kit will suddenly find itself on my doorstep free of charge.

No that's Santa! I believe that we are being victimised by the same behaviour that we are being suspected of, why is that o.k? here is a Drummerworld targeted ad i just had when i googled in. Nice!

I don't think that 'push' technology can decipher your needs from a post, and then email you suggestions... yet.

That must be it and glad of it as well. Many amazing deals in the U.S. at the moment and surprisingly a good option for Canadians regardless of shipping costs or duty.
