I assure you this is 100% real.

About once a year, we go to Ikea. It is a long drive, we spend too much money, etc.

After getting a Google Home, my wife and I were in our living room discussing whether or not we want to go to Ikea the next day.

Neither of us had used Google Maps to look up Ikea. We hadn’t used the web to search for or visited their website.

No. There was nothing to even remotely let know Google know Ikea MAY be in our future.

Later on in bed we decided not to go. No Google Home in the bedroom.

The next morning, without any prompting… my phone had directions and a map pulled up to Ikea.

Oh yes, my friends. It is listening. It is doing. This is what we CAUGHT … imagine what is going on we have not caught.
