We are all use to it. Gmail, everything on Google, banner ads, etc. are all seemingly targeting one way or another (my banner ads are often specific to my geography). Even direct snail mail works this way.

It's not like they are spying on anyone in particular. It isn't personal - it's automated targeting.
