    Just say "ok Google" on your smartphone and 'ding'. Ask any question you like.

    Makes me wonder if the microphones and cameras on our smartphones are listening and watching us?

    Thoughts...

    Watch The Great Hack (Netflix) and prepare for your head to fall off.

    The microphones are obviously always listening. If they weren't, when you said OK Google or siri they wouldn't know you've said it

    I was talking about golf to a friend, I never play and have never searched for anything to do with golf. Ten minutes later golf clubs for sale started popping up in ads on my phone !

    I checked out the Health app on my iPhone. For the past few years it recorded every step I made and every floor I climbed, all time-stamped. It also knew exactly where I've been, when I was there and for how long.

    The fucker knows me better than me.

    I know cookies monitor what we do online but that's weird.
