i'm all for advertising your brand, etc.  but when it impacts my ability to use an application/website, it makes me mad.

take msnbc mobile for example...50 vertical pixels wasted:

winmob1

a huge banner ad for windows mobile.  here's my questions:

  1. shouldn't the site know i'm already using windows mobile?
  2. shouldn't it know my device capabilities and realize that they just wasted my screen space
  3. what would msnbc publishers think that i can't even see the top headline...

this site has turned from a news site to a banner ad...hey anyone on msnbc listening?
