How is this any different?

It's creepy, and is honestly one of the reasons why I have very little interest in an android device.
I wouldn't mind companies better targeting me from what I view, I'm really not interested in tampax commercials... As a matter of fact I probably wouldn't mind watching commercials if they actually showed me something I might be interested in. To me this isn't a bad thing.
