From Season 7: the Google-like tech startup Gryzzl in 2017 engages in data mining, which is already creepy enough and already happens today (with Google and advertising). However, Gryzzl uses this data to determine Gryzzl users' (and non-users who end up on their networks and their devices!) favorite things and/or desired commodities and ships these things to their doorsteps presumably free of charge... via drones that can ring your doorbell. This is all Played for Laughs in the show, but becomes this especially after Ron's son is sent gifts from Gryzzl. Ron's son, who's 4 years old and doesn't even own a Gryzzl device.
In the time skip series finale, there seems to be a national beef shortage. It is a wonder how Ron did not die of shock.
