I won't be buying that then!
Imagine if door-to-door salesman were like this. They would be breaking the back window to get at you as you slept!...
I will 'contact the company' (read the website) when I want 'a conversation'.
Why does the world need to be fed a constant stream of LYING ads for BS products that should never have been invented just to get by? Daft economic model totally reliant on ever increasing consumption of crap. It is unsustainable cos there are only so many hours in the day. People can only take so much crap! Even if they wanted more, their is a finite limit on their ability to absorb it! TIME.
Most people actively try to increase their crap-free time on earth and the best way to do that is NOT to let one's wallet vote for more crap that fills your life with adverts for crap!
This is why M$ is screwed. Always pushing the limits of how much crap their customers will take and finding that surprisingly, some don't want it. Are they just trying to get a customer base of the most gullible people on earth? Then ;et those that have better things to do than watch adverts go elsewhere. Someone will always offer an alternative. If they don't then the whole system is broken. Competition and choice right? Who will choose to watch MORE ads?! Why?!
They just want to raise the threshold of what is considered a 'normal' amount of advertising from most of every day to ALL of it! And who is going to keep the advertisers under control? If the whole purpose of making us endure more crap is profit only. Then, surely a few lying ads and scams/cons will not be too unethical - after all, only margin matters right?
Is this a last gasp from a company that knows if they don't do something about Google's advertising dominance, they will be bust? Well I hope it happens soon. Ahhh. That product got the best rant out in a while. I'm sure that as usual, others will also feel exasperation as M$ drag the world to a sadder place. Why don't they put us in tanks, strap us in, plug an 'advertising machine' right into our brains and have us watch ads 24/7? That's what they want isn't it! Why pussy-foot around? Just get straight to it! Where do I sign up?! NOT!
