    Advertising is a fact of life. Its not Cuba; nothing is for free.

    I noticed the advertising at realJock is getting more interactive.

    the other day i researched google for a cell phone case and came up with a list. Took some time to goto about five manufacturers sites on the list. than went on craigslist and ebay to find the product. I am sooo thrifty; found a used case on ebay for free shipping and $10 but:

    After this I noticed realJock advertising was all about cell phone cases.

    true but somehow the loop back back onto realJock? I dont recall seeing this on realJock before, maybe not looking.

    -not quite fast enough, I bought and paid for the item before i saw the advertising.
    -ebay offered exact product alternatives that were 1/3 the cost with no shipping or sales tax.

    southbeach is right; all RJ does is embed a "hook" in the page (a script that your browser will execute when you view the page) that tells the browser to go fetch an ad from google. When it does, it uses the occasionally controversial tracking cookies, which google placed on your computer the first time you visited one of their partners, to identify (directly with google) your ad preferences, which they got via an agreement with eBay.

    I don't like the practice, but more for technical reasons (such as the self-defeating delay you mentioned, pellaz) than privacy ones. The fact that RJ never even sees the ads, let alone delivers them directly, in a way protects your privacy and compartmentalizes security somewhat. This is in stark contrast to Facebook, which smears your personal data all over the place, bouncing it back and forth between countless untrustworthy parties.

    For awhile I was getting ads for the American Red Cross. Which is rich considering they still think my blood is contaminated since I've had set with a man after 1979.

    Now I get ads for DaddyHunt.com
    Either Google is trying to say I'm old or it thinks I'm broke and need someone to support me. icon_confused.gif
