Oops - Fairfax Digital's Google AdSense placements get a little too relevant






Unfortunate ad placement on this article on The Age re the laser pointing issues facing pilots flying into Sydney Airport.


First image is the article ... second is the Google AdSense placements ...


Notice Google Ad Number 1 - is for a company called http://www.dragonlasers.com/ which allows you to purchase the same sorts of lasers (they claim these are the 'worlds most powerful lasers') fuss free and delivered that have been causing all the fuss to the pilots trying to land.


Unfortunate to say the least.

Nice pick-up Shep. You need Snagit so you can get a whole page in one image.

Good pickup shep, publishers have got their work cut out for them on those contextual placements..

SnagIt: Best $40 you can spend on an app, use it daily.. video capture is a bonus..
