Hey, in the place of the Shout Box, we now get ads! Looks like they are Google ads.

Interestingly, one of the ads I saw this morning was for Bang & Olufson's Beolit 12. Maybe I should get it instead of those Audiobytes I was pondering? Ha.

I'm seeing Orb Audio ads right now.

If one of my patients said that, I'd have to updose something.

It's all about context, eh?

Adblock Plus is a beautiful thing.

I've disabled AdBlocker to see the ads, and I've seen several ads for speakers. Gallo, earlier, and now exterisaudio.

I don't know how this works with these Google ads, but I don't know that I would want to lead potential customers away to another speaker manufacturer. At the very least, some might find it confusing and think the ad is an Axiom-made product.

Not to mention that sometimes the ad doesn't open in a new window or tab...but leads you off the Axiom page completely.

Motorcycle tires are showing now. I just bought some yesterday, a day late for the add LOL.

I was a bit surprised by this decision.
