Even Their Ads Don't Work Right
Thank God American Express is sponsoring Salon today, because I nearly killed someone last week when Microsoft was sponsoring the "Day Pass." The damn thing absolutely would not play for me, instead popping up a little window that said "the designated file needs a codec to run, but does not specify which one." And so, there was no way to proceed, because the damn thing wouldn't play without the codec, and wouldn't continue without playing. Extremely frustrating, but so very typical of the boys in Redmond.
