Are the big adverts in the middle of the top few articles in the news section a permanent new feature?
But they've hit their target market right on the head there. Athlete, Keane, and Son of Dork. Good stuff! Where do I sign up?
and lo, the adverts all disappear.
i'm on firefox but i still have the adverts. weird.
my firefox "adblock" doesn't seem to remember blocking the adverts, so i have to do it each time. SCORE.
Mine always has. No ads on last.fm either. This is firefox 1.0.7. Maybe my friend who actually knows about computers and the internets sorted it out for me.
they're REALLY annoying. right at the bottom of an article is okay, or down on the left there, but NOT in the middle of an article, thats just so annoying its untrue.
sold around 12,000 copies of there single so far this week, mores the pity.
why itunes would pay to put those ads there totally baffles me,as if the dis readers checking out an arap strap article or something will be like 'oh the entire eurythmics video backcatalogue? thats exactly what i was looking for. perect. forget all this indie nonsense'. they obviously have no idea what the site actually is or who reads it.
... i've yet to have an itunes ad. all i get are ads from a marketing company, which is even less useful.
likewise! adtech a-gogo.
adtech: your ads will love it!
but, that money that itunes seems to waste on its non-target audience goes straight to making DiS better.
So, really, apart from the annoyingness, its all good for DiS and, eventually, us.
