    Why would I care if they figure out I am looking to buy a grill, and start showing me ads for grills?

    Why would I care WHAT information they gather about me?

      Because the grill you're looking at is only a fraction of the data they weened from your perusal of the web. Much like herd immunity from viruses, internet privacy requires "vaccinations" and awareness. The more anti-privacy people like you there are, the more difficult it is to demand privacy concessions from these companies in the future.
