    Fishig buddy of mine and I have tested this extensively with some wild results. We are often out of cell range while fishing and sometimes we will even power down our phones. We will pick something random and stupid that has nothing to do with us to spend a few minutes talking about, just sitting on the lake with our phones off and in pocket. After returning to service we can turn our phones on and scroll through the Google News feed and every time, without fail an ad will pop up with whatever stupid thing we discussed. Last weeks conversation came out with hilarious results and buddys phone being spammed with sex toy ads for three days following.

    On another outing we left both phones sitting on my kitchen table, low and behold our conversation while traveling in his truck was where the ads were targeted upon return.

    There is almost nothing you can do anymore without being watched.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    You'll find ads for things you text and email about too.

    My home phone is still a land line and my cell isn't logged into any carrier other than Mobility. Much more privacy that way,
    It's better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.
