Big Brother Is Watching (and I kind of like it)

If you don’t think Google, or Facebook, or Apple, is “watching” you, you’re crazy. They are. Though I’m not entirely sure it’s a bad thing.

Take this example. We’re headed to Miami today. I never told Google that. They “knew” because my gmail contains a booking reservation for JetBlue (which reminds me I have to check in).

So as I started typing crib rental it assumed (correctly) that I needed one for our upcoming trip to Miami. In a way that’s really spooky. In another way it’s kind of amazing.

Sidenote: It’s also freaky they clearly know I have two kids and are thinking we’re heading to Disney World. We’re not. The kids are too young. But, Google, since you’re listening remind me in a few years. Thanks.
