Amazon have patented a system where if you watch video reviews or ads for the item you are looking at, the price drops.

I foresee a lot of watching **** in our future.


I'm not sure how that is patent worthy, but there you go.

With all that google now stuff? It's bloody endless. If the eBay app spams me about things I am not remotely interested in one more time I'm pretty close to throwing my phone off the balcony.
Abit like that episode from black mirror
I foresee a lot of people opening up a second browser window, whilst the video plays in the background.

Settings, nofifications, (choose app) turn everything off.

Always do this when I add a new app, just wish I could set it off by default. I let ebay ding off but never had an ad? Or google one for that matter
Youtube is a pain now. At least you can vote if you like a video or not.

Anyone actually liked a video yet? When they make me wait 5 seconds, all adverts are *****.

Its a killer isn’t it, there’s a reason google give android away for free they are an advert company and you are the product. I went back to iOS and I’d never look back.

Then I wouldn't get notifications that are actually necessary though. I don't think that would differentiate between notifications and ads.

I just don't think they should be allowed to I use notifications for ads.

Don't see why not. They're already making good use of BBC rejects like Clarkson.

Its flipping mental my mate loves samsung and had them time and time again but even he is telling me the S8 is the worst divice he's ever had for adverts. Sometimes my lock screen has adverts on it showed my mate he was like wtf. Couple of days ago i logged into my google account and accessed my voice recordings my phone has recorded every single conversation i have had round it since i got it the whole lot is stored in google. The other thing is people say android is a developer phone which to some extent it is but not with out google its not the samsung S8 was not impressed with me installing Amazon apps store i did this in the end but its a right work around. ISO is sandboxed. And if google had there way so would android be.

I used to love android but it’s getting worse, the fact you can get an application update and it may display ads on your homepage is pretty poor!

i love the freedom of android but hate its lack of security, it just skims as much data as it can about you but I’m shocked about it recording!!

in the end glad i ditched it!

I think the reason samsung phones are all singing all dancing and gimmicky is becuase android is such a crap OS. If we just compared the OS android vs ISO then imo ISO is by far better. If we compared the phones themselves then yes samsung phones have a lot more tech and can do more.
I got a Samsung note8 and I don't get any adverts , I've played about with settings and turned everything off in google settings . I still get notification for sms whatsapp and missed calls and HUKD , that's all I need

Mira always lazy tech though with them, they never truly nail a feature it’s always half baked or the follow Apple.

about the only groundbreaking feature they’ve ever had was putting the phone to your ear when on a message and it calls for you.

Its certain applications that do this you probably don’t have any installed that do. Apps can auto update and add this, it does tend to be the dodgy free apps with loads of ads that can do this

I didn't know you could run a phone on a CD image.

I can't stand iOS. It's extremely inflexible. It's not a viable alternative for me.

I've seen a fake version of Facebook messenger do this on my Mum's phone. No idea where it came from or how she got it.

Yeah ive seen it happen a few times, real apps going rogue and serving ads on the homepage. The fact that it can happen is poor from a software point of view. But hey I bet it uses Google Adsense so why would they be too concerned about it

Trolling you say hasn't Google just had to pull 60 apps from its Play Store which attempted to show pornographic advertisements to children hidden with in childrens games. Play store is utter s##t comparied to apple store.
