Shortly after reading Seth’s little rant about non user-initiated audio ads on Rhapsody.com 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.
