      You're absolutely sure?? Having worked in a profession where electronic devices were perverted to whatever use was convenient, I wouldn't be so sure.. It's not paranoia, it's reality...

      Start talking with your wife about your bank accounts including balances, passwords and social security numbers in front of these “smart” devices and THEN explain why we’re paranoid.

      I do that every night. There's very little money in those accounts, so who cares?

      BS. Most lawyers make more money than an enlisted guy. Or are you spending like there’s no tomorrow? I could arrange for my dad to give you a few lectures on that topic.

      The problem is the paltry amounts that are coming in, not going out. I need to shake down the membership again.

        Nope. In fact my wife and I were talking about the name of the USF Sundome changing its name to the Yuengling Center while driving in the car today – 1 hour later her iPhone then had an ad on Facebook for the Yuengleng Center.

          In a recent conversation between 4-5 of us on a ferry, one guy had his iPad out. As we were having this very conversation about big brother tech, the iPad was taking keywords from our conversations and IMMEDIATELY loading (I think?) Google searches on the screen. Some of us started throwing out random topics to mess with the guy. I yelled “midget wrestling” to see how obscure his iPad was willing to go. He didn’t show us the screen again, so I can’t confirm success.

              Ive tried this multiple times. No ads.

              Of course, I have all that "Hello Google" crap turned off. Maybe you should too, if you can do it on an Iphone.

              I didn’t know the guy well enough to know if his wife had a sense of humor. Btw, that’s WAY worse than what I was thinking. You should seek help.
