- By knowing which databases you have, they can infer which websites you visit.
- Some databases are named with user-specific identifiers. Google is given an example, and with this identifier you can associate the user with a specific identity/user on another service.
- By knowing the specific identify of a person on another service, you can fetch potentially detailed information on this user.
- You can fetch this information from multiple services, and tie together that User 1 on Service 1 is also User 10 on Service 2, which was otherwise impossible to correlate.
The issue in short is:
- There exist a Login#123 on Website that logs on at Time
- There exist a Login#123 on Website that logs on at Time, according to his public Google profile his name is John, and he has recently visited Site#34 using Login#666 and Site69 using account Login#999, and with no/unknown login on Site#70 and Site#89.

No, since that would be covered under NDA.
That sounds like incredibly dumb behaviour.

Pretty sure Apple’s implementation flat out doesn’t work except between a Watch and iPhone. It has never switched to either of my Macs without manually connecting.
Even with the Watch and iPhone, Siri for example will still sometimes start talking out of the watch instead. Its completely inconsistent what it’ll chose to do.
The far older Multipoint at least actually works as advertised and consistently – even if it is limited to 2 at a time.
Price, should be the obvious answer.
A monitor doesn’t need the post processing chips, tuning circuitry, or speakers that a TV requires.
And TVs tend to require heavy configuration and calibration to obtain any form of colour accuracy since TVs are setup to "look good" and "pop", not be accurate.
Even though you’ll rarely be able to feed at 240hz, keep in mind you still benefit from the significantly reduced blur from the much faster panel.
