"I wrote the code to launch the window and run an ad in it," Zuckerman wrote. "I’m sorry. Our intentions were good."

Those intentions, he explains, were originally to hide a banner ad that a big car company didn't realize it had bought on a sexually explicit website. It was too late to remove the ad from the site, so Zuckerman created an ad to pop up over it and hide it. Little did he know how pervasive pop-ups would become.

Apology not accepted! Jk.. My pop-up-blocker on my Mac actually works pretty good, so I don't really see too many pop ups these days... well, aside from that dang Dodge Ram add i constantly get here on ATS


At least the guy is trying to apologize though, not that some other coder wouldn't have figured it out eventually anyways...

Do we know yet if they are sticking with the same format or going back on thw next one? Windows 8 shouldve been tablet only. Its garbage.

Ditto.



I haven't seen a pop-up ad for a long time now. Thankfully.

Supposedly, Windows 9 will be a much better hybrid. We'll see.

On Topic: As well he should be sorry. Though as stated above. Someone else would have come up with it. Or worse.

Ad blockers work great for those who don't have them.

Currently running adblock plus on my machine.
