Have you ever been talking about a pair of trainers or holiday destination, and then suddenly seen an advert for that precise thing pop up on social media?
Us too. As incredible as it sounds, it might be because our phones are secretly spying on us.
It’s a question I’ve been asking for a while after seeing adverts for things I’ve been talking about – but not searching – popping up on my phone.
A year or so before we moved out here I went and saw an attorney over some legal matters and when I was called into his office he pointed at a basket on his secretary’s desk and told me to dump my phone in there, then he put his phone in, saying he didn’t allow cell phones in his office when he was talking to a client.
