  • Naaaah I dont know about this. What is really more likely: That a number of tech companies fed my info into some simulated digital voodo clone that can exactly predict any type of random- and not random events, from general click behavior to my previously unknown cousin calling from some satellite phone on Antarctica asking if I want to take a coffee and do some fish shopping in some random marketplace in Turkey with specific brands of Greenland fished seal? Or that these companies using voice recognition to more accurately pinch adds on the right things at the right time? Im no conspiracy theorist, but altho digital avatars sounds like a possible thing to create and experiment with, I do believe a simple voice recognition function plugged into the algorithm and approved by myself sounds like an easier way to go.
