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.

        It's all about the money and to **** with the actual users of Yahoo. Goodbye Yahoo. Hello MSN.

        "Under review" must prompt negotiations to get more money to run the un-closable apple ads.

      • KarenKaren commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm not an Apple customer nor do I ever intend to be!! GET RID OF THE YAHOO HOMEPAGE APPLE ADS!! At least give the option to close the ads!!

      • MaxMax commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Why can't I close any of those annoying Apple ads. I can close all the others. Either get rid of it, or get rid of me. I've had Yahoo for more than 15 years and used to tell all my friends use Yahoo, use Yahoo, that's about to change because of one little "WTF" on your part.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        As long as you can't delete this annoying Apple ad on Yahoo! I will not use Yahoo! for news and will not use a Yahoo e-mail address, and certainly not my homepage. You have lost a devoted Yahoo! follower, all the money you gain is worthless if no one visits YAHOO!.com

      • Chip McClearyChip McCleary commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Nice idea, Yahoo. I haven't gotten upset with other changes in the past, but the barrage of sponsored ads (1 in 3 - and even if I try to say, "I don't want to see this" you keep shoving it in my face) and the new, "you must watch this ad" campaign have pushed me to skip the homepage completely and change my home page to something else. You might as well go all-in at this point and run Flash on *every* page.

        As much as I hate Google, at least it doesn't pull this kind of **** - or if it does, I can block it. I expected better - much, much better.

        Get a good adblocker extension for your browser. some will even get rid of the virus spam yahoo hides in their news articles lists. Note: if the news article has the words "sponsored link" it is most likely a link to a website loaded with spy ware and viruses. Yahoo likes to disguise these links to malicious software as a news article. There is no limit to what yahoo will do for a dollar.

        I hope everyone does the same thing as I do when they see an uncloseable Apple add on Yahoo!'s home page: Leave feedback and then leave for a different site.... msn.com, Google.com, CNN.com... whatever.
        Hopefully, Yahoo! will get the message and get rid of these aweful ads.

        Remember Heartbleed ? I call this one Applepeel, get rid of this annoying Adware Yahoo! Let me take back control of the Ads that appear on my PC, if I want to delete them then give me the opportunity to do so.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Trust is out the window when using Yahoo! anymore. If you can't delete a scrawling Apple ad by choice. Then what else are they doing to your PC when you are on their homepage.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is like adware, malware, unwanted pop-up protection that you pay security anti virus firms to protect your PC against. You can't delete it or get rid of this ad by choice so what is stopping Yahoo! from planting anything else they want on your PC.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If I didn't buy an Apple product would they send me one free, I don't think so. Its called Freedom of Choice ! It could apply to having ads appear on you personal PC, you could choose to delete them or not. But in this case you have no freedom at all. So why bother using Yahoo when your Freedom of Choice is gone!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It's bad enough any time Yahoo insists on these ads that either take up the top half of the start page or has animation that wipes all over the place. But now you can't even get rid of the thing. Makes me extremely negative forward both Apple and Yahoo. I will not be using the start page until Yahoo removes this.

      • Juan EllaJuan Ella commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree. It's an imposing ad that just lurks there like a mean dog tied to a fence that you try to ignore but can't. It's annoying. It's distracting. I am trying to read the news, not shop. When I want to shop, yahoo has a neat little link to the left of the page that I can click on that says "Shopping". These ads are too 'in your face'.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Very much agree. Ads are one thing. Not being able to close an Apple ad (or any other) when i have no intention of researching or buying the product, quite another. Same goes for not being able to delete a sponsored item. If I choose to read something of interest, it is my choice. If I don't want it there, I want it GONE.
