Tanya Gold in the Guardian: advert #fail

January 5, 2010 No Comment

Tanya Gold has written some anti-iPhone drivel in the Guardian. I'm not going to link to it or its 17 questions. (Nothing to say? Why not ask lots of questions? Is that a good idea?)

But wait. What's that in the advertising slots on the page? Oh, yes, an advert for the Guardian's iPhone app:

Guardian's Tanya Gold slags off the things that pay her wages

Guardian's Tanya Gold slags off the things that pay her wages

Leading to two conclusions:

  1. The Guardian can't sell ads against Tanya's copy OR
  2. The income from selling the Guardian iPhone app is paying her wages.

Doh.
