  1. Doesn't his apple watch defeat the purpose of him putting his phone outside the glass in the beginning considering the apple watch has a microphone on it…?

  2. I've had my dad get really random Japanese videos in his suggested videos list, the night I was trying out learning Japanese language. I hadn't even been doing it for more than a day, it was all in one evening.

  3. This may not work for some people but I think it does listen to you on the Amazon app, when I was playing a Harry Potter trivia game with my friend she went into the app after and all the suggestions were for Harry Potter related stuff

  4. It was my understanding that this only works depending on the settings and age of your iphone. For example if Siri is activated then it's likely what you say is being recorded but THEN it's if your phone is 'on' and you're using it in your hand and having a conversation. AND that this was a hidden marketing bug in your iphone 5,6,7 or something. AND it works better for target advertising if your device recognizes your voice (do you use the dictation item?) (Do you ask Siri lots of questions?) I could be wrong, but you have to jump through a few hoops for the targeting to work.

  5. I know this will sound crazy, but try doing it less discreetly. Cause I had a conversation about Oreos, a real Kemal conversation. Only said the word once and there was an ad 5min later even though I've never typed that word at all
