Yesterday, on a woodworking forum, I commented on small handheld wood routers. Promptly this morning, on the Fox News app, there’s an ad to sell me a small handheld wood router. Just further confirmation that our personal information and wants and needs are ‘out there’ for sale, use, or examination by the government or whoever pays for it.

If you wanted to keep a low profile, you failed, as did I. Maybe I should work up a short list of things I think that are NOT known about me. There are a few things.

But since my wife just ordered me some jockey shorts, even my waist size and the fact that I wear double D underwire jockey shorts are on the web. I suppose sex starved women will be texting soon. Can’t blame them...

Did you happen to google search that same subject?

An interesting Netflix program on this topic is The Social Dilemma.

I don't know that I would call it sharing, maybe stealing, pilfering, swiping or thieving?

Use duck duck go, turn off tracking on your browser, and use a VPN -- it will cut down on a lot of it

True story on a forum I used to moderate....guy posted a help thread bitching about all the porn ads he kept seeing on the banners of the website. I kindly reminded him that forum used google ad packages which were based off his search history/email.....didn’t hear another word about it after that.
