So how do they know?

Sunday I went in Bass pro shop looking for a specific item, didn't buy anything or do anything but gasp at the prices and left. The next day and each day since I have gotten an email from bass pro shop, never before. Makes me wonder what kind of magical spy devises they have in there.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Well yes I did, that did not occur to me. May have to remember to turn the Fn thing off when I go in places like that, or don't go in places like that is a better idea.

Or leave it off until you need it, if you ever really do.

You're older than dirt so you may remember the days when a phone, if you had one, was used only for emergencies.

Hell, I can remember when my only phone sat on small table next to my easy chair.

And had to be plugged into the wall!

And, I had to walk over to the TV to change the channel.

Yep, the world has got everyone thinking they can't live without the evil things.

it was definitely your cellphone, and most likely you had left the WiFi enable and it was searching and trying to login to one or more of their channels.

I use an app called MacroDroid to disable DATA, WiFi and Bluetooth when my phone is "dark, or screen locked". so, if my phone is not used inside the store, then they don't know that I was there.

Maybe I'll just get rid of this thing all together and solve the problem while at the same time cutting costs. Had I realized how much big brother can find out about you just by having one of these things I never would have got one in the first place.

Not to worry Dave, all they know is "you were there" and if you buy anything, they already know that.

The fact I didn't buy anything should tell them something.
