Go to Hell CTAM
F#ck the advertisers if they want to control my PC so that it simultaneously shows the same adverts as TV.
FYI CTAM, the only notice I take of adverts is that some irritate me so much that I resolve never to buy that particular stuff. A "Quality Street" chocolate advert some years ago was so silly that the big tin I buy every Xmas is now Cadbury's Roses.
A recurring theme at present is to depict an idiot, usually a white middle aged man, who is shown the 'error of his ways' (ie not using the crap they are trying to sell) by a woman or younger person. Do I really want to identify with this jerk by following suit?
Anyway, at the very least I turn the sound off for adverts, or I have a book to hand that I pick up and read. It is suprising how much you can read this way - which goes to show how much of people's lives are wasted by adverts.
