That ad is showing up on so many websites right now, it is taking over.

It is dreams that will survive, for a dream is immortal.

I didn't get it at first because I was looking at the ad itself. You need to look at the whole page.

That's pretty funny. Though, really, it did a better job of convincing me to switch to Ubuntu than to MacOS.

[edit: the ad seems to be down right now]

Was this the one with Mac and PC at the side, where PC has a button for the banner across the top? That was funny .

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

I think they must have taken it down. Maybe Bill saw it and released the hounds...

I saw it earlier though and to be honest I was surprised CNet agreed to post the ad.

When you said perfect placement, I thought there was going to be some cleavage and a tattoo or something.

Publications don't 'pull' ads.

Once ad space has been paid for it take a lot to have an ad pulled, like misappropriation, unsuitable content (for example overtly sexual), or plain lies. The Apple banners contain none of the above.
