Is it now typical Americana for ad agencies to invade every form of privacy citizens have?
It's disgusting.

And to make matters worse the In-House Creative Ideas Team that came up with this x-gen marketability concept are probably on six figure paypackets and will get themselves a healthy bonus for being marketing geniuses......

Is this going to spawn a new form of internet advertising similar to viral marketing? I guess only time and iPodcaster :cool: reaction will tell. :cool:

Into my iPod? I believe that as long as it remains my iPod, they can't touch it...

There are already ads in several of the podcasts available via the iTMS. Slate/ESPN both have them - thankfully, you can forward through them - although so far the rest of the show has been v average too.

Ad Execs want into my iPod... well, it's about the same as if I'd say I want into Angelina Jolie - nobody cares. :cool:

The only ads I have on my iPod are all the Bud Lite - Real Men of Genius ads, because they're amusing. Even more amusing that I haven't had a bud lite in like a year. (Long live Guinness, says I, and other non water beers)

People are using an iPod because they want to choose the music they listen to," said Craig Davis, chief creative officer of WPP ad agency JWT Worldwide. "To interrupt and intrude on that with advertising would be pretty unwelcome."


Thank you captain obvious. :rolleyes: I would like to nominate this comment as understatement of the decade.

Please don't start this into an America bashing thread. If you think greed is solely an American trait I think you need to broaden your horizons to the entire collective that is known as mankind.
