Don't get me wrong, I'm all for reducing malware but these are major players coming together in a concerted effort to filter the internet.

Is it good? Is it bad?

Too early to tell but it does worry me a little.

But if they're coming together in order to filter the adverts, is that a problem? They can censor every advert (or none) for all I care!

[citation][nom]alidan[/nom]i like counterfeit stuff, so long as i know its counterfeit though.[/citation]
There is a little difference between a Ram chip that says Simsing and has a logo similar to Samsung but distinguishable, and those who you cannot tell, faking 3d logos and the consumer having to keep up to date with minor differences in logo evolution, double check everything, and buy to physical shops.
The former are trying to get some sales from the similarity in brands. The later are crocks.

i dont know how strict this site is with url, but i assume you know what to do with this.
go to half way through.
the only thing bad in these things are really the battery and if you know how, its not to hard to replace them with something better.

Google is just tailoring them based on your email content. Do you frequently talk about your small penis?

Hopefully this will mean an end to those retarded ads that promise to tell of a "weird trick" to...lower your car insurance, look 20 years younger, get instant six-pack abs, etc. Does anyone actually click on those? Or any internet banner ads for that matter? I use adblock plus on my computers at home, but at work I can't have that installed for technical reasons, and I'm getting pretty sick of seeing that crappy animated gif of the lady dancing because she was pre-approved on the internet for a loan.

It's amusing that you can go to another part of the country and the Mom would look the same

As long as you are paying, Fakebook are more than happy to take your cash. Due diligence doesn't seem to count when money is involved. Just this evening I have been bombarded with ads from various different companies promoting very cheap Uggs all pointing to the Chinese based website http://london-uggaustralia.com which I duly reported to Facebook only to get their 'not really interested' standard reply. Charter member my arse!
