    Visiting the site this morning, I was hit with an autoplay Samsung ad with sound! I felt like I just clicked something from Facebook.

    I understand the site is ad based... I get it. I totally get that Samsung is probably paying more to feature their ads here as opposed to nick.com or something... that's fine with me. Autoplay video on the side? That's annoying, but I understand that too....

    WITH SOUND ON? That's a new low for MacRumors... What's up with that?

    We don't allow auto-play ads. Can you post a screenshot if you see it again?

    thanks

    It was specific to the new Galaxy release event this morning... so I don't know if they just paid a higher amount to do that or what. If it shows up again, I'll post it.
