That feeling of being watched

Alexa, am I being surveilled 24/7? … I don’t use Alexa, but I have Siri installed on my iPhone. I don’t use Siri either, but every now and then she feels I addressed her and starts up. Which means, the phone is listening to me all the time. I usually don’t think about it, but when I do, it’s kinda spooky.

And it happened to me more than once, that my wife and I were talking about something, and when I decided to google the subject, google already prompts me the complete search query after only entering two characters. Or I start seeing related ads to the subject without ever having actually searched for it.

I freely admit that I’m not extremely careful with my data, but I’m getting more and more suspicious and mindful in spurts and take little steps to improve the situation. Alas, those spurts never last, and only a couple of days later I get annoyed that somebody isn’t using WhatsApp and I have to text them a regular text message. It’s one of those hundred areas in which one vows to improve oneself, but never actually finds the time to go through with it.

Well, as badly as I am being tracked, at least I haven’t been intercepted by F-15s!

Yet.

Check it out! We’ve just published a new short animated clip:

We’ve been trying out some new scenes and backgrounds. Also, we have changed the voice for Julio. It’s a long story, but due to logistical reasons we unfortunately had to replace our good friend Marcos. So we did a search and a casting, and in a survey, our Patrons voted for Mark, who you can hear in his “debut performance” here. We’re very happy with the result! Hope you like it too!

It’s done! Our new animated short has just been released into the wilds of Youtube! Check it out! It’s a parody of the “Top Gun 2 Maverick” trailer. Chuck is somewhat of a Maverick in his own mind, but ends up a little short of captaining an F-18 …
