Think...Within a Limit

.
For the last couple of weeks, the irritating experience which I am getting is this MS office ad's pop up, whenever I go to Rediff page. Alas... Rediff is my home page. So, the internet explorer starts with these irritating Pop-ups always.

Don't we have some handsome guys and gals to market MS office products? Why should they resort to these Childish monster characters faces for the users? Probably they can make use of these characters, if they launch products targetting the Kids.

I know, there is a say, "Creativity has no ends". But, I believe there is a limit as well, to these kind of weird thoughts.

I have an idea. Turn the start page into Google :-) no po-ups, no nothing! (Google has been my home page for eons).

thanks IBH for dropping in..Saranyan, as you said, it may become an adverse publicity.

I am just keeping Rediff as my home page, to get in touch with Indian news immediatley, when I go into IE.

If these sort of irritating pop-ups continue, I may hv to change the home page, as thennavan has suggested.

if you want indian news, switch to TOI as homepage for a few days. You will gladly switch to Rediff after a few days...

I didnt like the ads for the same reason. Not sure why they couldnt find a better ad for this product.

pop ups r irritating, true. so get a pop-up blocker or someting else as a home page.

Coming to why i thot of dropping in a comment...
that Ad is NOT about a childish monster. We r talking about extinct creatures still making life difficult in a workspace.

So the next time yuo dont figure out what an Ad means... stop n watch it again or make a 'post' out of it... whichever suits u better.
