    Ads on my work machine are showing up in Chinese (?). I must have searched something. I just find it odd. As I type this, I have 5 ads on the right, and three of them are in that oriental language.

    No bid deal - just interesting.

    You searched for a MIC guitar?

    I love the fact that when you buy something online, you start seeing ads for that product. Hey, guys, it's too late, I already got one!

    I sometimes do a search for something wierd just to see what ads come up. Keeps me amused anyway.

    Here I've been getting ads for a woman's swimwear firm specializing in large cup size. My newspaper app has ads selling bras for all shapes.

    My wife or daughter probably did some shopping on the iPad we share or sat at one of my computers.

    Thanks for the update. I was making assumptions - I *though* I could tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese - in my mind, Chinese characters are "more intricate", Japanese a bit simpler - but, as shown here, I'm just blowing 'Murican smoke. :D

    Soooo, I don't search MIC or MJT or MIJ guitars, but I read a few posts on them. Wait - now I get it...
