Anything to keep your grubby paws on the majority of the money your business makes, and keep your paycheck the same.

Way to ignore Reagan's cabinet when they gave you economic freedom and told you if you allowed yourselves to become greedy and turn into a aristocratic society that you would kill America. Thank you corporate America, you've ended any hope this once great nation had.
That is the trend sir.
That is the way it has been going. Even in hard times CEO's have to meet the quota to keep their job and pay and satisfy shareholders. They can't reason that there may be a pay cut for everyone. You cannot continually increase profits all the time. There will be downfalls.

But shareholders don't understand this concept they always want their cut and always want it to improve over time...

Of mixed feelings.

1) It's an invasion of privacy. This should be self explanatory.

2) I think it's kind of inevitable. The trend in everything these days is to use larger and larger amounts of data, and the internet has made that data available to everyone. Laws just aren't going to be very effective at stopping this sort of advertising; the information is out there, and a lot of people have big incentives to use it. Could we really stop personal information from being used if we tried?

Every time you dont (or do, depending on the wording) tickk that tick box asking about sharing data with selected third parties, you've agreed to let them do this.

Companies buy and sell data all the time. This is a complete none story

Why using autocorrect then? Can't it be disabled? I have suggestions enabled on my Android, but it won't mess with what I write.
