I am wondering:

1. Is this an error?

2. If not, are you planning to merge with Maclife?

3. Is this a trend we can expect to continue?

Thanks for any/all answers. (Other than meaningless flames)



P.S. I am not faking this. I really saw this ad. There is also a version that shows while waiting for the home page to load.

P.P.S. I uploaded the ads. You can download them Here

P.P.P.S. I got the direct link for the ad on the homepage. You can view it Here

P.P.P.P.S. As of now, you can force the loading page ad by going here Here

P.P.P.P.P.S. The direct link for the Ad on the loading screen is Here

P.P.P.P.P.P.S. I have downloaded the pages with the ads on them. They are a little distorted by the save process, (go figure) but feature the ads. In order to make the pages download with the ads intact, I had to download them in MHT format with the Firefox UnMHT addon. Anyway, you can download The Home Page with the ad on it and The Loading Screen with the ad on it. Like I said, the pages are distorted, but they do show MPC with Mac ads. I recommend the unMHT Firefox addon to view them. I tried it in IE 7 and it did not load correctly. Also, please be patient with these links. They take a while to load. The pages should open automatically though, if you have UnMHT installed.

P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S. I rarely use IE, and I have a program that doesn't work with IE8, so that is why I haven't upgraded.

This is a better post than the other one on this topic, but I think that we should keep this one bumped and lock the other one?

I'm guessing this is due to the marketing department and not the editors. It is still funny though.
