"Plugs in the City"
My Spock like left eyebrow went up questioningly at the ease with which Charlotte York discreetly ordered her embarrassing book with 1-click® shopping.
She was going to buy it at the books store with Miranda, who had just come from a Weight Watchers®
meeting and was trying to resist the cravings for Krispy Kreme®
. Mmmm... original glazed is my favorite, too. While I enjoy the fact that HBO doesn't have commercials, I thought that is why I paid $20 a month. Some how I prefer real ads to this insidious crap
. It was creepy and also destroyed a lot of the immersion of the show for me. The whole episode seemed stilted and odd.

I need your help in figuring out why I saw two
pop-up windows when visiting Amazon.com
several times in the past week: the usual one for Amazon's most recent promotion, and one for one of their competitors
. If you see a DealTime
pop-up ad while visiting Amazon.com, please help me figure out how it got there. I think something insideous might be going on, but I'm having difficulty re-acquiring the pop-up.
Please see more details inside if you're interested, otherwise you can ignore this. I'll post the results under a separate thread if they're interesting.
