Ok, ok I know advertising is a necessary evil. I don't mind banners, and I can put up with flash animations distacting me on this site, but a bloody little Ipaq PDA following me around, and jumping all over the show is too much. Robo, I know you can't do anything, but surely IDG should think before it sells taht kind of advertising on a website aoimed at computer users who undoubtedly hate pop-up advertising.

Surely the customer should come before invasive advertising?

I don't really expect this from PC world.


P.S. For those who haven't seen it yet, the new cpompaq ads get a little animated PDA to follow your mouse around the page.

Here, Here... yes I totally agree. This damm stupid ad chasing me all around the screen is frustrating and intrusive. Give us a break would you!! I thought we could come to this site to relax a bit and get away from corporate evil bastards. Obviously not!!

I must be one of the lucky ones or I have a different setting. I have not seen this upaq thingee once on any of the computers I use.

Sounds a tad annoying.
