    I always manually turn the data ability for the phone, on and off. 'On swipe' when I need to use the net, 'off swipe' immediately after using it. Sometimes I'll power down the phone completely. and then put it away where the microphone is at least muffled.

    I don't live on my phone, no one should, IMO.

    If you watch the `experiment` once more; you will conclude that its not valid in a conclusion that Google used his voice: It does however show his bias towards expecting an end result and getting one:

    The Op in said video opens the `random` tabs [by no means are they random] sees an ad related to what he wrote/spoke of and then effectively influences the other tabs by directly clicking on the ad instead of merely noting its presence and not clicking it:

    What I mean is; by the Op clicking the animal toy ad; he may have instructed other participating `white spaces` of smaller sub codes available to become potential openers for ad placements; which seems to be the case as the animal toy ads are identical:

    A web-page in todays brower actually fill their purposes where ads are auto generated; but only appear once the user observes them or opens the full page for a second or more: Even while scrolling; ads are auto generated; sort of `on the fly` if you will:

    Out of many variables; this process lowers the need for high bandwidth and the computational process itself: The early web was so slow due to such variables where most web pages were static due to their content being pre-programmed: The result was a lot of unnecessary lag and `buffering`:

    The same principles are also applied in the gaming industry to enhance the overall experience with a lower need for computation; bandwidth and storage; where a frame or set of frames [in this case - GFX or Graphics] are resolved when required; and this is done only when the user self generates them by observational instructions:

    NOTE: I am not rubbishing the claims herein of voice to text ads; but merely saying this `experiment` is not a good conclusion: However it does express itself as an example on how the next one can be improved upon; because despite how things seem; coincidence does not appear to limit itself to current human understanding: Just my thoughts on this:

    I went into stores and I just found out that they secretly keep the location on my phone. I have now turned off absolutely anything I can find. I booked a holiday and now all they do is showcase flights to my destination on my phone.
    But I for Put stickers over my microphones and I got a bug detector and trialed it out. I found that my radiators are apparently bugged by something too.

    Thirdly, I wonder that even when you leave things at home on the laptop for example why would it update your computer when it's possible they are updating your private usage for others at head quarters xyz to see what you been up to on it.

    I had my mobile/cell phone left at home and I went shopping right. As soon as I got home, there was comments popup stating what shops I had been too and asking if I had a good time aka how would you rate it. No kidding. I was like You are kidding me. I only brought my debit card with me and used that. I was like OMG. I went as some of you know to YVR and when I came back the phone was providing me advertisements for yvr flights and comments reviews about your visit to YVR airport.

    I want to get a basic phone next contract and I don't even put the tv on no more. I prefer the silence in a way. BUT I'm still fighting with voices in the head and I need to wake up more. Peace.

    Oh I also went on twitter putting CIA stuff about Targeted individuals etc and now they trashed my inbox never in over ten years has it happened to me. I'm not mithered I'll continue.

    I noticed that mic appear a while back. I'm not suprised at all they are live tracking audio. This is mainly about entrainment. Getting us to shrug, say meh, and eventually accept a soft surveillance state.

    Can you use Javascript to disable the internal browser mic + cam? I'm building a site now and am interested in browser security, specifically what surveillance cameras you can switch off using JS:

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/.../Web_Audio_API

    The really paranoid part of me thinks they might be able to override any settings set by Javascript in the browser. But remember... ***we agreed to the Google Terms and Conditions.*** None of this was forced on anyone. I speak as someone who has a gmail account. They have to respect our free will, and get our consent. Using Chrome or gmail is consenting to their plan.

    Downloading chromium might help. I wonder if live audio tracking still works if you're using chromium.
    The mic in the macbook is in the sound settings in systm preferences.. Not the keyboard area.. Go to input. If you cannot find it, try your bluetooth connections tab as those also attach to sound for bluetooth speaker systems and such and you can change your settings from there. You never know what ha an actual mic in it, so always look to bluetooth as well.. It may be pairing something that has both a speaker AND a micrphone.

    Holy cow! I'd call that a "WTF moment" alright.

    Well for what it's worth, I see this as a good sign. I'm glad you're "not mithered", and thanks for teaching me a new word When I experience this kind of thing, I say to myself: "Don't mind that", and laugh about it. I mean, it's really quite ridiculous and hard not to laugh.

    Personally, I don't mind "being watched", but I do mind being recorded! It's getting to the point now though, I cannot avoid being recorded - there's cameras everywhere. Even the TV is listening to us, my friend exclaimed at his TV "How the F do I get out of this?" and it brought up a help menu for him immediately. He didn't even realize the TV was reacting to him at first!

    The TV's that can recognize you are creepy too. Like it knows who's watching by your face. Creepy.

    My daughter and three of her friends tested this idea several times. Same result. As strange as it seems, they all seemed to notice that ads and links popped up for things they were only THINKING about. My girl told me that when they were doing this little trial she thought to herself that she needed to stop on the way home and buy floss. Within 4 hours she got an Amazon ad for floss on sale. She mentioned that to her friends days later and they all screamed that they'd had the same experience. Dear God, is this really possible?

    Could you tell, please, was the phone on when she thought about buying floss, off, in her pocket, in the same room? I had similar experiences but haven‘t dared to take them seriously by now.

    Sounds like what people call "reality creation", and I think it is possible - but that also implies that we're living in some kind of weird hologram... (at least to me, and maybe only some of us)

    My friend had me try an experiment thinking of an "unlikely object" and I chose a white cat, because I'm sick of seeing black ones. Within a few days, I saw two white cats - one on TV show "Modern Family", and another one belonged to an old friend who I hadn't seen in a while. I've mentioned it before and someone on PA tried this, and then messaged me to tell me it worked for them also. Personally I found it kind of creepy, especially with not one white cat, but two!

    If anyone's going to try this experiment, try not to be alarmed if it works

    The "real" white cat belonged to a person I betrayed once (edit: they forgave me), so I felt it was a "good sign"

    The TV white cat which I saw first happened extremely fast and was incredibly creepy.
