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.

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

It's all about context, eh?

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.
