Re: Most people don't care until

"I've had friends post some kind of creepy experience they've had where they were searching for a mattress store (for instance) on Google Maps on their phone, and then they start seeing ads for mattresses on their PC at work. How's that possible, they ask?"

Saw that when heard about stuff on the radio and went to check it out, that's why I started a seperate Google account for work.

I try to keep my equipment as locked down as practical but don't want some of my... *ahem* greyer searches turning up on my works network potentially breaching the internet usage policy.
