Internet History Tracking - Proof Positive - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components
-- Employment & Interviews
-- Miscellany
-- Swap Shop
-- Systems
-- Test & Measurement

Greetings:

Over the last few weeks, I have noticed that almost every Google Ad displayed on websites is related to a website I previously visited. For instance, this morning I was looking at telescopes and accessories on telescopes.com. The next few websites I visited while searching for engineering headlines had at least one Google Ad related to telescopes. Here is an example from the Cellular-News.com website that actually has a telescopes.com ad. If I empty the browser cache, it stops. Coincidence? I don't think so.

Hi Kurt. I've noticed that for a long time. Surprised it took you this long. Congress is working on laws to limit or prevent the practice. Try using the Incognito mode of Chrome to prevent it. I think IE might have a stealth mode too.
