Sounds like same type technology used by NSA

The technology listens in for keywords in the conversation and then sends out ads. But the same tech has been used for decades by the NSA(and obviously Israeli intelligence) to listen in to international phone calls and then kick out calls for special attention based on words and phrases used in the conversation.

Oh great another tool to help the art of relating to each other spiral further down the toilet. It is bad enough we are distracted constantly on a cellphone - multi tasking our way through life.

I can see some funny scenarios -- your best friend calls and tells you someone has just died - up comes ads for ... coffins, funeral homes...and estate planning?

I dunno -- while I can appreciate the technology - I think the use is one more step into the surreal world of "pimp my communication".

According to the New York Times: "Mr. Maislos founded Pudding Media with his brother, Ruben. Each had spent several years doing intelligence work for the Israeli military."
