    Really?? It's been that long since I've seen an ad anywhere, I have no idea. Do you know why this is? Strange.

    I also noticed that ad. I'm so used to seeing ads about powerbook g5s and g6s that I don't even notice them anymore.

    No... Goooooogle. There are only six of the 'o's in the targeted ads.

    Don't spread the FUD! :p

    The ad that put a hair up my nose is the "Mac Notebooks" Ad from Futureshop.ca (probably Canadians only see this one). The store doesn't carry Apples at all, just a bunch of Compaq etc. Wintel.

    They are a discount electronic big box (like Best Buy or Circuit City - in fact Best Buy just bought Future Shop).

    But... I noticed that by clicking on the Gooooogle link you can send Google feedback. So now I can vent on Google.

    Like, it does matter. To those of us who have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder it does. And the fact that I can't miss a chance to nudge edesignuk in the ribs a bit....

    Beh. It's just a sleazy affiliate marketer with a clone of Apple's Store page that redirects you to Apple Store UK. "G5 powerbook and G6"... not only that they are keyword spamming Google with other companies' trademarks. another spamming, cheating SOTE.
