    CNN pushes Overture on news stories

    Not sure if am the only one to notice the "targetted" text ads on CNN news story pages.

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/space/0...eut/index.html

    I know it's a new thing being a regular of CNN's website.

    Oh no....the "myie2" thing again.

    I guess CNN is trying to make some extra dosh by adding text ads, can't blame them really. At least it isn't really intrusive.
