Adverts at the top of the page

Has anyone else noticed the adverts at the top of the page here (just below where it has the options for 'Home' 'Forum' 'PhotoGallery' etc) seem to know what you are thinking?

Recently I bought some Hammerite from the internet - the header ads suddenly were for paint. Then I bought a new mobile (cell) SIM card - again the header knew. Now, right this minute it's encouraging me to upgrade my internet package (with my current supplier). Scary how it knows don't you think?!

Well I have worked it out. Derren Brown has been recruited by ebil internet empyrz to rool our brainz! Must obey, must obey, must obey

Not sure how it works but the adds you see are based on you search activity.

Google ads. Google see what you surf on the internet and then tries to put product in front of you that may be of interest. When you click on the Google banner or link then the site owner earns income.

Not me. If it can read my mind it will know that I think the 172 is FUGLY.

I use a clean up program and set my browsers to delete all cookies and history when I exit. Or use Private browsing. Stops all that rubbish downloading
