    That's just plain old intrusive. Sort of a cool concept, but the fact that there's a huge guitar blocking the text on the page voids it.

    I agree, I absolutely HATE ads that fly up into my face like that. For shame, Apple. And I don't care for Bob Dylan either...but I digress. ;)

    Well, it looks better as the guitar moves and the dancer dances.


    It isn't something I want all the time, it is just a cool ad that I think is pretty sweet.

    Wow, I agree. Very surprised to see this from Apple. I'm not angry, just disappointed :D . I would be willing to bet Steve doesn't know about this.

    These ads are insanely popular with advertisers, as are all flash based ads it would seem. :( Most 'majors' got bitten badly by the 'popup outcry' and so here we are.

    Sick. And not in the good way, like, "My girlfriend's sick in bed!"

    It might look better on a white page, but the white outline around the headstock ruins it. Looks like one of the stupid ads you'd see on MySpace.

    Daniel.

    Looks like UNO with a bit of custom adress bar.

    Thumbs down for the ad. Thats nasty and not at all part of the Apple marketing dna.

    Thanks.

    Flash ads make me want to pull my hair out. They crash browsers (a few over at Gateworld always crash browsers) and people wonder why programs such as Adblock are used. :mad:
