BBC said it'll pull radio streams from TuneIn to slurp more of your data but nobody noticed till Amazon put its foot in it

"I pay for train tickets, but I am still subject to huge high-intensity video screens at stations pumping advertising at me non-stop."

And Shell filling station forecourts. They took away the simple display showing the £'s and Litres counting up too fast and replaced them with video screens which play adverts and the actual relevant data is a video overlay on the LCD panel. Worse, they have speakers and seem to be triggered by picking up the fuel nozzle. That's up to 22 pumps blaring out adverts, often the same adverts, all out of step with each other. If our company provided anything other than a Shell Fuel Card, I'd never darken their forecourts again.
