’Morning Joe’ Scarborough recently told a personal story that is either quite a synchronicity or evidence that we are being spied upon through our phones and computers by simply being in the same room with the digital devices. Here’s what happened.
Joe, who is over 50, decided to take up running. But he found entering the activity at his age to be a bit embarrassing. He talked about it at home, but swears he never did any on-line research about the subject or e-mailed anyone that he was going to become a runner. He actually wanted to keep quiet about it.
Yet, soon after his at-home conversation, ads and articles began to pop up on his computer about advice and products for runners over 50! Go figure. A serial synchro? Or can our devices now listen to us? I’m hoping for the former, but fearing the latter.
