Whistling In The Graveyard

Monday, August 18, 2003

OK, here's something interesting I just learned by accident. I realized some time ago that Blogger reads the content of my blog and uses said content to choose what ads to put on the banner at the top. I kinda thought this was an OK feature in that, if I had to have ads, they were ads for things I like.

So anyway, I did a search on Kazaa-Lite for the horrible Roger Corman, Fantastic Four movie. Only someone who's built up the bad movie tolerance that I have should even look in the general direction of this piece of crap. It was made just because the company that owned the rights to do an FF (That’s short for Fantastic Four for all you HIP people out there…) film had to make a print by a certain date or else lose the rights. So they hired Corman to squeeze out the loaf that was the Fantastic Four feature film.

Anyway, my point is I did this search on Kazaa-Lite, and what appears on my Blogger ad-banner? Two different FF related ads. This sets me to wondering exactly how much of my computer Blogger is, in fact, reading.

Just a thought for all you Blogger fans out there.

It's a wonder I don't have ads for pornography...
