Since I posted this over a year ago, the range of targeted adverts has narrowed drastically. No more solar panels, female fashion accessories or baby buggies. No, now they’re homing in on the fundamentals. I am desperate for life insurance, private health insurance and payday loans. And Amazin’ are even more convinced of my need for yet another copy of ‘The Essential Jerry Lee Lewis’. (Can’t have too many of those, can you?*)
Isn’t it good when you see technology working as it should?
The spam is even more impressive – I now know that I need ophthalmic treatment (true), in Dallas Texas (less true), and that several effusive admirers of my blog would love to enhance certain aspects of my anatomy.**
But this morning brought a real delight. Yesterday afternoon, I’d booked transport to Jersey, for Christmas with my relatives there, with a small, very customer-friendly airline. They try so hard, you almost feel sorry for them, because in my inbox was an offer, as a new customer, of a discounted Christmas break, in Guernsey.
* I may just have given myself a theme there for tomorrow’s post.
** I’m not convinced.
