I think I saw an iPhone ad up there once. Cool with me. If Apple and MS want to help support the site, I'm OK with it!
But look at the slogan!!
That's a slogan? I thought it was a paradox.
At least it's another example of MS's marketing dollars being wasted on a message that doesn't speak to the market it is trying to reach. They are trying to be the salad bar at McDonalds ... let's see how many people really want the lettuce without the two whole beef patties and special sauce.
So some people do look at those banners up there.
I use adblocker anyway.
also, I don't want to be saved from my phone.
I figure Android came from an Advertising company, so why not let the ad sit there.
Ehhh... it could be much, much worse!
Irony... It's a mother f*cker
I've been real curious what MS will bring to the table to compeate with the phones on the market so I watch their advertisments. So far....nothing.
Not too long ago there were Harry Reid ads up there. That didn't mean i drank the kool-aid and voted for him!
new winmo made an appearance on Bones tonight.....soo cheesy and out of place. They made no attempt to disguise the product placement it totally interrupted the flow.
Its like some weird movie
We must save them from themselves
That is the way I look at it too. I click on them every time I see one. Keep the site up and make them pay for it is a win win in my book. Although, I only see the ads when I'm signed out.
From what I've heard they have little control over who's ads go up. Not really sure how web advertising works.
That is exactly what I thought!
money is money. someone once told me, and i'll paraphrase here, "Black, white, brown, yellow, red....shoot, you could be purple with yellow polka dots, there's only one color i see.....green."
LOL, after the recent antics perpetrated by our Fed, I'll take mine in gold.
This is the only forum site I have been associated with that has ads. Those pop-up ads are the most annoying of all.
Why do you need these ads anyway...
I don't get popups... I even have them enabled for this site for PMs and whatnot.
I dont get ads... use adblock on Opera Mobile
I agree ads can be annoying... but is that ^ a serious question??
Use it on Firefox. FTW ads!!
I think this is pretty funny
As a long time WinMo user and supporter...I'm pretty sure the phones they are referencing in the banner ads are 5.x and 6.x devices!
