Targeted Online Advertising

I think I found a flaw in the targeted online marketing computer model. The other day I bought a new money-clip-style wallet. It's great. I really like it slim design, plus they shipped it to me so quickly that I literally had it in my back pocket less than 48 hours after I ordered it. But....now all the ads on my web browser are for MONEY-CLIPS and WALLETS. Hey Zappos, I just bought one of those, why would I need another?

UPDATE:  Yesterday I bought a new wireless mouse.  The one I have just doesn't work all that well.  I expect I'll get my new one either today or Monday.  So look what they're trying to sell me online now:

[Thanks, but I've already got one on the way.]
