    I don't know what happened with my YouTube feed but all of a sudden every other video in my suggested feed is about propane, mainly filling the little 1lb bottles from a larger tank. I didn't do a search or even watch a video with/about propane. Maybe I thought about it after reading a resent PUP post, but that was on my work desktop and the YouTube feed is on my iPhone. The two are not linked in anyway. These things scare me sometimes.

    Here is one for you. I will do a search for a product on my phone and advertisment for that exact item will show up on my girlfriend's phone. Different accounts, different providers.

    For the longest time I was very careful not to allow any link between my work computer and my phone. At some point, the Big Algorithm figured it out anyway. I'm still not sure how.

    I'll be honest, I don't even bother hiding them from each other any more.

    Even better, I was talking to a coworker about an old film one day. Again, just talking, no computer involved. Got home that night and my Netflix feed suggested the very same film as something I'd like to watch.

    So the phone in your pocket was listening to you (without permission? Or was Siri or whatever turned on?)

    I ordered a furnace humidifier from Amazon. Now Amazon thinks I've started a new hobby of humidifier collecting.

    I've been told this is a form of artificial intelligence. Artificial - yes. Intelligence - um, no.
