    "Alexa" is an Amazon program, not Google's. But if you want to see Google's ad selection at work, do a few Google searches for a household appliance or electronic gadget and then watch the kinds of banner ads you see on websites you visit (this happened to me when I searched for refrigerators and computer power supplies).
    I support UNexit: Get the US out of the UN; Get the UN out of the US!

    BIG CHEETO Is Watching You!

    Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    I have AdBlocker.

    They will pull it only out of my cold, dead hard drive.

    But are you really, really,really sure ???? She probably is still
    recording and the reason it takes so long to boot up is she is
    uploading all her spying!!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!
