Forbes.com – Boo Hiss

I was following a link on Google News to an article on Forbes.com about Microsoft and RSS. On the page was a video player that started playing video with sound right after the page loaded. I have always hated these self starting videos, especially ones with sound. I don’t need that going through my office when I’m just trying to read an article. To make matters worse, this video box had NO stop button. I couldn’t shut it off. Best I could do was lower the volume. There was so much advertising and junk on the screen anyway, it was almost impossible to find the article. That’s the last time I ever go to Forbes.com.
