Sneaky Samsung Ads at Bloomberg

Sneaky Samsung Galaxy Tab ads at Bloomberg.

As you are viewing a Bloomberg story, e.g. the London Taxis Protest Against Uber – a black overlay (e.g. above) will cover the page with a link to another story e.g. the Bogus Cash story.

The overlay covers the page and makes it hard to read the original page.

The tiny “x” makes it difficult to close the overlay.

And, in the process of closing the overlay, if you click anywhere else by mistake (except a precise click on the text), you’ll be directed to a Samsung Galaxy Tab ad. There is no mention of Samsung anywhere.

Sneaky Samsung. Misleading Bloomberg.
