Comments on: Online ads, creatively in your face Where media and technology meet Thu, 17 Nov 2016 18:58:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Simply Disgusted Wed, 11 Mar 2009 00:10:55 +0000 Understandably, advertisements are needed to support the medium, but these in your face, flashing, spinning, obnoxious assaults demanding attention at every turn diminish the joy and satisfaction of reading. Presumably, we’re going to care more about the products for sale if the adds are larger and make more noise. I don’t think so; just going to make me navigate elsewhere –Newspapers are great, the adds are not animated and stay where they are, not jumping out of nowhere to annoy you. Too bad the internet is killing the local rag.
