Facebook (the app) can't, but Facebook (the ad network streaming commercials to set-top devices through Tubi TV) can see your IP, and then compare it to Facebook (the app) users' IP addresses. What a terrible, misleading headline - Facebook knows what you're streaming because they're serving the commercials that are streaming to you. Still, note to self: NEVER use Tubi TV.

Even if they only do it after the users explicitly turn on the feature to push music down to their phones, and then it still will only work over wifi unless the users explicitly turn on another feature to "download over cellular"? You really think they have no business doing exactly what the user has asked for?

If a) I already knew you and had set up an arrangement to grant you access to my home to deliver books that I've purchased in the same manner, and b) you ONCE put a free book that you, the store owner (not the publisher), paid for as a promotion, then I would not be upset about it...EVEN IF it were not a book I wanted, because the solution would be to throw away/give away the book, and then my "problem" would be solved.

I'm not sure if you're being willfully obtuse or not. AMC refers to and sells the 8 episodes as "Breaking Bad: Season 5". You can debate the merits of that all you wish, but are you seriously suggesting that Apple (or Amazon, or any other retailer) are being disingenuous for listing the product as "Season 5" and selling it as a single season?
