Nope. Won't get used to it. In this modern world we are bombarded with advertising from all directions no matter where you go or what you do. On TV and radio, on the net, in the street, by the road side, at the bus stop, in the cafe, at the movies, everywhere.It's 2015, websites have ads, get used to it or get an ad blocker?
It's not subtle. It's abusive. Given the way ads try to dominate your attention and worm their way into you mind and change your very consciousness I would say they are actually evil. And to rub it in I was reading today how someone is wanting to bring legal action against a provider of ad blocking software. Now they want to dictate that ads are compulsory and dictate what I can run on my computer.
Yes I'm from the past. As are we all. Nothing wrong with a one line speculative comment in passing conversation. I guess I was just a bit miffed at being led to a page and finding myself wasting time reading something totally useless and uninformative.The Pi is a gadget, people speculate about new gadget releases - this is quite normal. Are you from the past?
We are not such meanies, really, honest. Might get a tad annoyed sometimes.
Anyway, I thought we had just got a new Pi model. I have two of them. Thank you Pi Foundation for all your hard work and the resulting wonderful gadgets. If any thing new and wonderful comes along that would be a bonus. I'm busy making use of what I have got.
