Smart advertising

When did online advertising get smart?

Ok maybe ive just ignored what was obvious for some time, but it now is jumping out at me where ever i go in the virtual world.

There was once a time when i'd visit a web site and be bombarded with adverts for random stuff like watches and supplements. All could be safely ignored.

Today i notice that on several websites ive visited toay that i get the same oliver sweeny advert. Nice shoes i think, especially since i was perusing their sale just days ago. So there you go tempation. Its a good job I'm skint post christmas.

It does provide a new opportunity for shoulder surfing though, the adverts we see could reveal our furtive behaviours.

Is anything private anymore?
