PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android and iPhone users [...] will also experience BlackBerry's ad content in the form of mobile takeovers starting the week of March 25. Those mobile takeovers will fill your screen with what looks like a BlackBerry 10's, demoing a specific feature like its photo 'Time Shift' capability that allows you to scroll through several captured options for each face in a picture." Yes. BlackBerry is going to run ads that hijack your entire smartphone's display. Sigh.

That's not okay, in any way, shape, or form.


Nonsense, of course it is. It's what expected to happen when you *click the ad*. Obviously you're clicking it because you're interested in the offer so having the ad expand to the whole screen is a non-problem. If you don't want that to happen, don't click the ad.
Are you also opposing full-page ads in magazines and newspapers?
