I was at the local small-chain grocer here in the southern US. I saw a new (new to me) brand of frozen mac ‘n cheese on sale so I tried it and I liked it. Two nights ago I went to the other store location across the county and bought two more frozen pasta dishes of the same brand.

Fast forward to today: I now see their ads on I believe Instagram (could be facebook but I can’t remember it was early this morning).

I’m very unsettled if this is targeted because I go out of my way to keep my data as close to me as possible. I never spoke the name of the brand aloud nor do I believe I took any photos or even pointed my phone in the general direction of the product.

I paid at the first location with cash and the second location with my debit.

I’m very unsettled, I know this could be a coincidence but it just seems too fishy to overlook….

Thoughts?

Private photo sharing service for baby photos?

Is there a service that stores photos but doesn’t claim any ownership or copyright on my content? I would love to share my baby photos with family using individual accounts for auth, but posting her photos to the internet scares me if someone else has access and claims ownership of that content.

E-mail Metadata scrubbing software?

I got an idea recently. Metadata is one of the most important ways that corporate and big gov snoops spy. So why not implement a scrubber for .eml?

Old and/or outgoing emails (via local proxy?) could be cleaned by redacting dates, unneeded headers, x-mailer, IP addresses, etc.

I was surprised to find MAT and other tools don’t already do this.

Is there already software to do this? Or is this another project that I should learn python for… ?

Android Smart Watches that respect privacy?

Are there any Android smart watches that respect privacy? I know that is a stretch but I thought this would be the place to ask.

I know you can turn off location data, but I’ve heard google stills collects data.

I’m not logged into any google account on the phone bc I use yalp. I don’t use google maps I use OSMand~ instead. So I have no real use for location data to be turned on.

Is there a way I can truly block google from collecting location data and other data collection other than uninstalling opengapps?
