Is your phone secretly listening you? NO!

I have been hearing people telling me that they are suspecting their phones are listening to them because they have been seeing creepy advertisements appearing on their phones with pinpoint accuracy despite them saying they never performed a search on that subject. My immediate response is IMPOSSIBLE! These technology giants e.g. Google, Facebook and Microsoft just have too much information on us, huge enough and yet still growing, to profile us and possibly know us or our partners better than ourselves know ourselves or people around you.

From advertising to data mining, do we need regulation or legislation? An interesting an hour discussion over this topic below.
