Let's talk ad-blocking.

With the arrival of iOS 9, ad-blocking is coming to mobile in a big way, and it's causing a lot of talk all over the web. It is highlighting the internal struggle some feel about the practice, but also the hypocrisy of some of its staunchest proponents. So far, it seems like the real 'bloodbath' isn't taking place where people thought it would be - namely, publishers - but among personalities.

I thought the same, until I found myself standing in a Japanese store looking for diapers...and just bought Pampers because it was the only brand I knew. Cost 2 Euro extra, but saved me from overthinking.

I was also looking for a case for the Lumia 1520 that I picked up for next to nothing on an auction here...couldn't find anything but there were hundreds of options for iPhones, a few Samsungs and Aquos. If all you see are those, you would never think of buying that Nokia.
(I payed 111 Euro for the 16 GB version. That is the all-in price without a contract and including shipping and taxes!)
