3 inches of Advertisement on Pitchfork March 9, 2009the mindlabadvertisements, PitchforkMike The music review biz must have been hit hard by these bad economic times. In addition to music whatever, the new Pitchfork site layout features about 3 fat inches of advertisement. Picture not to scale.

Or maybe it’s to make up for people like me who block the ad from being displayed.
Go check out the Washington Post’s home page. Yeesh. And you CAN’T block it.
That is terrible (viewing it from Internet Explorer), but Firefox with Adblock Plus does block it nicely.
ESPN is doing the same thing. In Firefox, flashblock stops that stuff too.
But why should I have use up precious hard drive space for Firefox? Then the advertisers will just find a way around Firefox.
Precious hard drive space?
Let’s do the math….
There are roughly 1,000,000 MB in 1 TB. (Actually 1,048,576 – but we’ll call it 1mm)
You can get a 1TB hard drive for under $100. (but we’ll call it $100)
Cost per MB on the 1TB hard drive:
$100 / 1,000,000 = .0001 cents / MB.
The min required Hard Drive space for Firefox is 52MB
.0001 x 52MB = .0052 cents cost for Firefox
