New Sounds is unlike any radio show you've ever heard: a whirlwind tour of new and unusual music from all corners of the globe. New Sounds combs recent recordings for one of the most informative and compelling hours on radio, and aims to make the world smaller. For over 25 years, host John Schaefer has been finding the melody in the rainforest and the rhythm in an orchestra of tin cans. Defying rigid categorization and genre pigeonholing, New Sou...

The author still takes a fairly simplistic (and lopsided) view of the problem. There's no balance in calling the people you rely on for your word of mouth advertising and ad-views crooks and thieves.

All that does is justify their ire that they will either direct at you by not visiting, or (surprise, surprise) using adblock more zealously.

Drop the crap ads (and I'm talking about the malware, scams, and ones that intentionally break navigation of your page and viewing of your content, among other things!) and then we can have this discussion about disabling ad blockers selectively. Otherwise you are just being disingenuous in a slightly less offensive way than previous comm enters on this problem.
 
Ad blockers aren’t ‘immoral,’ but maybe you’re using them wrong http://tnw.me/q9HvX2Y
Last week we learned that some European mobile networks plan to block advertising across their services beginning later in 2015. In response, Editor-in-Chief of The Next Web, Martin ...

It's definitely a new and strange world. As an open source and linux advocate, coming back to Microsoft tools and feeling hopeful about a non antagonistic relationship between them and the rest of us is new. I hope they continue to make progress and prove this isn't more of the three Es or something similar.

Are you really going to install, Windows 10 TP build?

After removing several items in device manager, clearing all temp files, running some command line voodoo, yanking a SD card from the reader, it looks like it will!

The green, red and blue dyes in plastic milk bottle tops used in many countries are a real problem, says material scientist Sujata Kundu. The colours are hard to separate from the main plastic polymer and, as green tops are the most popular in the UK,...

Unihabitat, a design brand in Japan dedicated to creating clothing and home products for pets and their humans, has created what is possibly the best hoodie ever – the 'Mewgaroo.' Not only is it an adorable cat-shaped hoodie with paw-like sleeves, but it has a kangaroo pouch so you and your furry friend can snuggle and stay warm.
