Re: Google's Ad Mute Option Could Be a Valuable Messaging Tool

Google on Thursday announced a new feature that will let users mute so-called
"reminder ads" in third-party apps and websites that are powered by
its ad engine. It plans to expand this feature to its own services, including Gmail, YouTube and Google Search, in the coming months. The new tool is the latest addition to Google's dashboard for ad controls, first launched as Ads Preferences Manager back in 2009. The addition of Ad Settings and Mute This Ad will allow users essentially to block certain ads on Google, on websites and in apps.

This is a good move, but for someone who works at an ad blocker itís weird that this functionality is being compared to ad- or tracker-blocking. We did a test, and out of 55 ad types identified, Chrome 64 will block only 9 of them (vs. Adblock Plus which blocks 51). You can see a side-by-side comparison spreadsheet in this blog post: https://adblockplus.org/blog/what-will-google-chrome-s-new-ad-filter-actually-block-we-investigate

If the FAA approved the use of autonomous drones as passenger "air taxis" for short commutes, how interested would you be in riding in them?
Very -- too much of my life is wasted in clogged traffic.
Not interested -- even if they were safe, they would be ridiculously expensive.
I'm looking forward to them -- smart machines will save human lives.
I'm skeptical -- but if they proved reasonably safe, I'd get on board.
I'd use them -- human pilots could take over remotely if necessary.
No way -- I would want a human on board to take over in an emergency.
