Gnashing Teeth Over Pop-Ups

dentalsoftware.jpg Shortly after reading Seth’s little rant about non user-initiated audio ads on this morning, I found myself in the dentist’s chair. Hanging over that chair is the now ubiquitous flat-screen monitor displaying the day’s appointments, dental records, x-rays, and all that other important dentist stuff.

Only today, the screen was displaying something I’d never seen before: a pop-up ad for a Rhapsody MP3 player. I didn’t even know those things were connected to the Web, but apparently they are. The ad pretty much obliterated my appointment and records.

Seth, you’re not the only one who’s peeved. So’s Dr. Cho, her technician, and yours truly.
