    Because it also tracks by your home internet as well. If two people are using the same home wifi, I'm guessing the profiles are intentionally overlapped.

    It's perfectly reasonable and profitable.

      My search was "top nascar drivers 2021". Kyle Larson was too generic so I went with second place, figuring there's not a lot of Martin Truex Jr's running around.

If this were true, someone by now would have monitored all bandwidth usage through their home network and discovered this constant streaming of data from their devices. It just doesn't happen. This would have been blown wide open, far too many people are watching these devices waiting to write that story.

          We were in the car and I wondered out loud about something very specific. It wasn’t even around buying anything either.

          I was just doing some digging and I don’t think Facebook or Google are doing it, it’s random third party advertisers we’ve never heard of.

            I would only buy this if it were Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Apple, or Amazon (I'm sure I'm missing some here). There aren't many that have the infrastructure.

            On the other hand, if it were local data processing, i'm guessing Apple and Samsung would have seen massive battery drains relative to lab testing and addressed that. It just doesn't seem plausible. Unless the gov't was behind it and gagged them. But again, we're getting into some pretty crazy unproven theories here.

              If I were to do it, I'd do as much local filtering as possible (meaning on device, tucked in apps or OS) to shrink what gets sent back. I'd spool up what was mined and put out a short burst data package on off hours (when traffic is low and the unit is on recharge power, not battery).

              RE: "battery drains relative to lab testing" ... What if the lab testing was done with 'whatever' running so it's just normal baseline battery usage to the end user.

                  Laptop doesn't have a camera. (I didn't spec it.)

                  For Teams/Zoom meetings I bought a desk camera with the built-in flap door.


                  But nobody would ever do anything untoward, and especially not to a journalist that's won a Edward R. Morrow Award, though their computer.
