    Want a laugh?

    I put adsense ads up on the Clyde and Athena Blog as well as my main blog and the ads are for diet and horse supplies on Clydes and Athenas!

    That's hilarious!
    It's as good as the targetted ads on Gmail. I was mailing back and forth with a friend about (bike) saddles for Clydes, and kept getting ads for tack & stable shops.

    Yep, Adsense is a Google Context ad anyhoo!

    Wasn't sure if it was the same thing. I guess it is.
    It's hilarious how things like that end up working, taking things out of context.

    Remember CueCat barcode scanner, and how it was supposed to target ad info based on what CueCat scans you did?
    I had a buddy that used to scan all sorts of weird combos of stuff to see what kind of adverts he'd get...
    jar of pickles, Lear Jet ad from Wired magazine, 3 candy bars, and a six-pack of beer: Hrm what kind of stuff does CueCat think I want?
