YouTube Giving Skippable Pre-roll Ads a Try



+ Add a Comment


And so we have another example of taking a working profit system and trying to squeeze ever greater amounts of money from the consumers. has done the exact same thing, adding more and more commericals, and even discussing a subscription service. Hell, even the full page random adds on this very site are annoying, we already see the other adds and even the "Sponsor" articles on the main page.

 Then we come to the OS integrated advertising that Apple has been tossing around, not to mention advertisements in a game that you have already paid for (Looking at you Burnout Paradise). 

 Greed is inherent in human nature, but it still sucks. 







the last thing i need is a 30 second spot when watching a 3 minute clip. Skipable or not.

Coming soon to --Tokusatsu Heroes--
Five teenagers, one alien ghost, a robot, and the fate of the world.
