The New York Times, today, reports that Verizon Wireless (my mobile provider), is about to allow ads on their mobile phone screens.
Exactly what we all wanted, right? Not even close. We are already bombarded daily with generally useless, irrelevant advertising. Plus, this method of stuff-it-down-your-throat advertising is SO 1990’s.
I was disappointed to read this on my NY Times RSS feed this morning and was happy to see this articulate response posted on one of my favorite blogs.
Read it here (especially if you work for Verizon or care to keep your cellphone ad free).
