Ads On Your iPod Anyone?


According to an article from Advertising Age Apple is going to start out with billboard ads on the iTunes site itself. Although the title of the article encourages sensationalism, that Apple is biting into the "Forbidden Fruit" if you read further they say the ads will first appear in the lower left corner. Perhaps more of a nibble than a "chomp" as they claim.

It may be more interesting to read the speculation about introducing advertising in its premium content (the ones you actually pay for). The article speculates that iTunes is "under pressure" from other content providers who are already giving the same content for free download, with ads.
