Is my I-phone “listening” to me?

I was complaining to my husband about my wrinkles.  We had just left our daughter’s graduation and I was scrolling through the photos as we drove south on I-95. “I’m definitely a candidate for plastic surgery” I sighed, “I’d better start saving for it now.”

We arrive at our hotel that evening..

I plug in my lap-top and this is the pop-up ad I’m greeted with:

This is not the first time a pop-up has appeared that eerily coincides with a conversation I recently had.

Anyone else suspect their phone is actively listening to them?

  1. Yes! Even when i have GPS turned off my phone will “tell” me how many minutes to work, or some such nonsense – I seriously fear my smart phone sometimes.

    • My good friend complained to me about the exact same thing as you’re experiencing. It’s starting to get a little Space Odyssey-ish for me..remember Hal? ” I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.”..YIKES!!
