The Great News App

I always get a warm and fuzzy feeling whenever I open my new New York Times app.

“Hmm, I never thought I was such a passionate news fan,” I said to myself.

It’s only now that I realized that every time I open it, the app shows me an ad of a huge chunk of cheese. Which is what produces the feelings of, “wow, this is amazing news” when I enter the app.

  1. Facebook has already sold the New York Times everything it knows about your life — which is EVERYTHING — so the app is obviously personalizing the ad to show something pleasing to you. Your Alexa unit is probably selling all your secrets to the world as well.

    You didn’t know that?!
