    Sometimes I swear I just think something and it shows up in an ad.

    I don't usually go anywhere near young adult books but I might give that a try.

    Didn't believe it until...
    This week at work i needed to order two pillowblick bearings. Never looked them up on my phone, never made the order from my phone. Just talked about what I needed to my co-worker. My coworker was actually the one that ordered the parts.
    Today I was reading an article on MSN. In the middle of the article was an add for pillowblocks!!!
    What the hell?!?!?!?!
    Turn your TV to one of the Spanish channels, leave the volume up, and leave your phone next to it overnight.

Seems that Ajax scripting now has the power to 'hear' video, or at least knows the most searched terms based on the video you're watching.
    I was talking with a co-worker a month ago on Skype's instant messenger and she remarked how one of our newer hires looked like Jeffrey Dahmer. Naturally, I immediately went to do a Google image search...all I had to type was "Je" and it was the top suggestion.

    Re: The Cell Phone Thread

    What is the consensus on One+ phones? I saw that the newest model scheduled to be released passed certifications needed to work on the Verizon Network.

    I had a few co-workers rave over them when they first came out a few years back; I haven't heard much since then as they were a GSM only phone and Samsung and Google finally got their sh** together and made some stellar phones.

    My S7 Edge is almost two years old. Was thinking I might need a replacement and was wondering if the new One+ coming out next month would be a step up from what I have now.
