    I get a lot of amusement from watching the the clever little tracker try and find the right thing to sell me.
    I don't browse that much stuff, but it clearly has me tagged for a middle-aged bloke of a certain income level. When I don't do any particular search on this Mac for a while, it resorts to selling me Audi's, life insurance and holidays.
    Today, wife bought a new Dyson while I'm away, and I just googled it to see wheat she bought. Now the little cookie monster is excited, cos he has something to work with, so teh headers are festooned with vacuum suggestions.
    I admit, I kinda like the banners as they act like a reminder list for bargains I may have window-shopped, but not bought yet etc.
    THe poor little search has trouble working me out though.

    All I'm getting these days is ads for gear. Like I need any reminders to be a gearaholic.

    You think it doesn't know you... But it does.
