Unclosable Apple Ad
The fact that I cannot close that Apple ad is extremely annoying and has now officially pushed me away from Yahoo! permanently.
Way to go Yahoo! on your latest annoying ad for "the new apartments.com". I understand ads must be present, and I don't mind them along and around the articles, in fact I sometimes browse the ads, but I do NOT appreciate them popping up and obscuring my reading view. Nor do I appreciate having to minimize or search for how to close the ad every time I hit the home page. Every time I open the homepage the thing pops up and obscures my view of the homepage. If I do a search and return to the homepage, guess what? It does the same thing. EVEN WITH POP UP BLOCKER ACTIVATED!!! I am a long time user of Yahoo, and I truly must congratulate you on chasing me off. I am no longer using Yahoo as my home page or search engine of choice because I am sick and tired of dealing with this type of nonsense. Additionally your advertiser - the newapartments.com would never get my business because of this ad. Thank you and good bye.
the ad for apartment.com should not pop up & cover the screen unless I click on a box asking it to open. Most annoying ad on Yahoo I have seen in years.
im so tired of it taking so long to load your page...im going to change my email...an home page...PLEASE EVERYONE THAT SEES THIS IF THEY DONT DO SOMETHING SOON LEAVE THEM..GO TO SOME OTHER SITE...REMEMBER THEY NEED US,,WE DONT NEED THEM...THERE ARE MANY OTHER SITES...I HAVE BEEN LOOKING...PLEASE LEAVE YAHOO...IF THEY DONT FIX IT...THEY GET RICH,,,WE GET ALL THE ADDS...THATS NOT FAIR....
WAAAAYYYYY TOO MANY POP-Up ADS!!! so distracting that I won't try to read any of the stories
I do believe Yahoo's the web master (and I am not to sure about the word "master") is trying to force users to Google
IF YOU DON'T STOP THE BIG ADS ON THE FRONT PAGE YOU WILL LOSE ME!!!!!!!!!! ESPECIALLY THE ADS I CAN'T DELETE LIKE THE APPLE AD ON NOW!!!!!
Stop allowing the Apple I-pad ad you can't close out.
Start out minimized... If i am interested i will then open it.
I vehemently demand that you immediately remove the Ipad Air advertisement from your Homepage or allow the user to close it at his disgression. Why in **** do you do this? It's a major distraction to what I really want to do, and it ****** most everyone off, and it slows down my system, and does not help sell the product.
Apple ad is unacceptable. At least give us a way to x the ad.
GET THAT HALF PAGE APPLE AD OFF MY HOME SCREEN PAGE! I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY ARE PAYING YOU - IS IT WORTH LOSING A FEW MILLION YAHOO USERS?
get rid of the adds on top of the page all you do is make not want to use yahoo...
remove apple ipad ad stop posting ads on top page of yahoo
GET RID OF THE ******* IPAD ADD THAT EATS UP HALF MY ******* SCREEN YOU ********
Get rid of the very Large Ad Banners!!! They are annoying, especially the Apple ones that cannot be closed!
STOP THE BIG ADS ON THE FRONT PAGE THAT I CANNOT DELETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM REALLY ANNOYED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WILL LOSE ME AS A CUSTOMER IF I GET ANYMORE AND I WILL NOT RETURN TO YAHOO - EVER!!!!!!!!!!
These Apple ads that aren't closeable just HAVE to go or I'm going to stop using Yahoo as my homepage. I get that you need ad revenue but shoving Apple down our throats isn't the way to do it.
FIX THAT APPLE AD! There is no "X" to close the Apple ad with.
The apple ad is obnoxious. Because of this ad, I will not ever consider buying an Apple product.
When I want information about Apple iWhatever, I'll go to their site! Stop putting those ads that take up a quarter of my screen on the Yahoo! home page unless you're going to put a "Close" button on them!!! Either you're jerks, or Apple is!!!!
Why can't Yahoo put the "X" (close) option on this Apple ad? Every time it's their we cannot close the darn thing. It is VERY ANNOYING and quite frankly I would not buy any Apple product because of it.
Too many **** ad's, can't enjoy the page. Can't get rid of some Ipad & apple ad's, it's annoying
Please get rid of these ads that won't go away, like the Apple ipad one today!
Please stop putting these hideous Apple adds on your home page that seem to take up one third of the page and cannot be closed. These ads are totally obnoxious and trust me on this, they make me want to do anything but buy an apple product. Horrible, please stop, to the point where I switch to MSN for the day just to get away from the ad.
YAHOO! Get rid of these fricking Ads that are driving me insane. I've tried folowing some instructions on Yahoo, to no avail. Please, get rid of this ****, or I'm DONE with Yahoo, one of many others I hear having this going on. JUST STOP THEM!
Apple ad or most of the ads makes me sick how dare you play with my home page now that I have it the way I like. Its up to you if I stay with yahoo or not.
This Apple AD locks up my desktop computer! I can't open Email. Why do you think I want my computer locked up? This is NOT fair to tie up my computer with an AD that will NOT load. Tell me why I should stay with Yahoo?
the apple ad makes wonder if i hate them or you more
Stop shoving the Apple ad in my face! You people are idiots.
What is with the stupid Apple ad on the start page that has no X to click out of. I am real tired of seeing that all the time. Hope they paid you well for that Ad.
It is a huge distraction to have the banner ad on the home page that the user can not close. I should not be required to have it running. If it continues, I will consider Google as my primary search engine.
Because I'm not able to close the Apple ad and it is eating bandwidth and page space, I'm switching my home page to Bing. Who's with me?!
Get rid of the Apple ad on the home page. It's back again and we can not turn it off
hey get stupid big apple ad off the home page...you screwing with my web time
Until you take that obnoxious Apple ad off the top of the page, I will no longer use Yahoo as my home page.
Get Apple ad away from my screen!!!!!......
thanks you... >:(
PLEASE stop the Apple ad on my home page
Yahoo is reeked with annoyance. Honestly, I am searching for something different where I don't have too pay any $49 to get rid of ads. The ads with Yahoo on my e-mail page are invasive to me and the one right at the top is the worst. I signed on this morning and watched an Apple ad load and it had no "X" (close ad) for an option. Fed up with Yahoo.
The Apple ad on the homepage that cannot be closed? Horrendous. I will not be on Yahoo very much today, or, for as long as that is staring me in the face.
I quit Yahoo yesterday for this same reason. I moved email, business ,EVERYTHING.
I quit Yahoo after several years yesterday for this same thing. Email, home page AND searching.

I would recomend using an adblocker. Yahoo isn't producing content worth paying for, you pay for it by being exposed to these terribly placed ads.
Use an adblocker and the site becomes marginally bearable.
There are ads on top and sidebar I wish I could remove.
LEAVE YAHOO....IN THE DUST...THEY DONT CARE....THERE RICH....
You mean "ads"?
I no longer use Yahoo because of it's ads now my homepage is Google. I only use Yahoo for mail now. I got so sick and tired of ads being placed everywhere. Their search results start with 4 ads then 8 valid links then ends with the same 4 ads as the top of the search page. I also got so sick of only 4 valid news stories between "sponsored" stories, which many time linked to adware-ridden sites like Answers.com. The last straw was motion news stories every few stories. Nothing like sucking up the bandwidth. It really makes you wonder what kind of company Yahoo is, where the would rather divert their customers to adware-ridden sites or suck up your bandwidth just for ad revenue instead of focusing on creating a great user experience. Really makes you wonder.....
put an "X" on the apple add!!!

I totally agree, way too much space is used by the adds. Adds that keep coming back after you close them, adds coming down from the top of the screen, adds coming in from the side of the screen, adds, adds, and more adds. Very annoying and yes I'll even make it a point to NOT buy or use the adds that are promoted.
Simple solution: download Adblock plus.
YOU TELL 'EM!
I'm so ****** off at that ad which I CANNOT close I could scream!
Apple must be paying a FORTUNE to Yahoo for that aggravation.
I hope APPLE'S money makes up for the loss of loyal Yahoo users!
I have always enjoyed my Yahoo account. Normally, the fact that I could click and close the top banner ad was something I could deal with. However, this extra-large Apple advertisement really does take up too much precious space on the homepage.
With all due respect that websites need to earn from advertisements, a nice win-win idea would be to let Yahoo account holders have the ability to click and close all the large header ads if they wished to.
People feel better when they have a choice. Thank you, Yahoo, for taking this into consideration.

I will be leaving Yahoo as my homepage as of now. That giant add splashed on my screen, says it is time to go. GET RID OF THE ADD,
The ad wouldn't be so bad if you could click on an "X" to close it after viewing it. But it stays there and takes up valuable real estate on the screen. It is annoying.
Yahoo is wrong for allowing this annoying ad from apple you can't close out!!!!
GET RID of the APPLE AD
Yes I agree all you do is make us not want to go to or use yahoo
I just made Google my home page - **** Yahoo.
Jesus Christ what MORON thought this was a good ******* idea????
I agree, the ads are terrible. I hate the one right over the drop down to sign-out. I hate the ones that look like and e-mail up top. Then they all have to load first before your e-mail page gets settled. Yahoo is money fishing and we are all victims of there money making. I downloaded another browser and like it and may just switch out of Yahoo completely. They, Yahoo, broke many things that were not broken and one was the e-mail page. They also got rid of really good parlor games like Literati, Pyramids, and other good card games. s all about the money and when a company gets rid of Customer Service they basically are hanging themselves. Yahoo is sinking.
