This week i noticed how annoying. and how much ad's have evolved compared to 2006. I remember ad's would only come out in the commercials in t.v or in the radio. They would be in news papers and magazines, but now they're all over us. They are like invading our lives, and it's kind of annoying that you can not mute them out of your heads. Every time i'm enjoying something an ad comes out. I wonder how it affects me having to see and hear these ad's everyday. Some people go as far as paying for the ad's to go away. For example, now you can get cable and pay in order to skip commercials on your tv. In the Pandora music app you are now offered an option to have ad's removed with a small fee. This also includes your tube. I even see ad's hidden and written into an article. One time i was reading what i thought to be a news story, and all of the sudden they were telling me about a product that i should buy. I also have a you tube blogger that i follow. She would talk about the typical american girl teenage life in general, and all of a sudden she started to give me "advice" about what kind of products i should put on my hair. I remember back then i would be able to change the channel or lower the volume on the radio, but now it seems impossible to remove them out of my life!
