I ordered something from Amazon earlier today and a few minutes ago got an email saying it has been despatched and should arrive Mon 22. With the additional information
If you have a mobile device, you can use the free Amazon Mobile App to receive delivery notifications and track your parcel on the go.That includes a link of course.
Two-way no doubt. I can track my delivery, Amazon can track me until I disable the app. If I download it to my phone. Grrr.
Earlier today (Sunday) I spent ten minutes or so changing lots of Microsoft security settings to "No" or "Off" having been requested to check and update them in a message from MS about Windows Creators Edition being prepared for download to me. (Prepared?)
If anyone else gets that message, don't just check the half dozen settings on the page they link to. Go back into the full security settings afte doing those ones. I found a whole list of businesses and such that MS were allowing to access tracker cookies (some of which I want) on my machine in order to target me with ads.
I don't want ads, particularly as anytime I buy anything online I get deluged with ones for the exact item I've bought. Madness.
Yes . I do know about ad blockers. But I don't use one, mainly because this site relies on them for revenue, and every now and then there is one I might click.
Seriously! It really is getting so unless we are extremely vigilant, impossibly so in fact, somebody somewhere is already logging where we are every minute of the day any portable internet-connected device we have is switched on.
I don't like that. It's creepy.
