From time to time articles appearing on show up on my telecom newswire. The design of isn’t great, but I’ve seen worse. But since yesterday when I go to an article’s page I hear a woman talking about some new features on the site! Are we back in 1998 when it’s ok to tie unrequested audio into a page? This is insane. Forbes sucks.

There is a small pause button, but it’s hard to see when you load the page because you don’t know where the audio is coming from. How about you make it a play button instead, if I care about some new feature on the Forbes site I can hit play.

Here’s an example.
