Adverts around the edges of pages I’m viewing seem a little, well, familiar.
A lampshade I’m sure I looked at yesterday, a pair of boots I clicked through to have a look at from an email, something I bought online…
It’s almost as if someone is tracking what I look at and then using it to track me around the internet.
Which doesn’t feel right when it’s done on a computer that I’m fairly certain has all the state of the art thingamywhatsits to stop that sort of stuff.
It turns out that you can download a thingy to opt out but even so this feels a bit like the whole privacy tweaks that Facebook keep putting in that really just seem to tone down your privacy settings.
I’m not sure I’m comfortable with this – it feels a little bit too much as if Big Brother is tracking me around the internet and checking on what I’m doing.
Am I being unreasonable? Is this the next big thing or is it just a touch too intrusive?
