Disable/remove my AdBlocker? – No way!
Just duckduckgo’d “difference t440 t440s” (referring to thinkpad t440 vs. thinkpad t440s) and the first result is this article from pcworld mag http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/article/537374/what_difference_between_lenovo_thinkpad_t440_t440s_/. Immediately after the page has been loaded, i was prompted a “please disable your adblocker” message. The typical way me dealing with things like this is rightclicking the overlay and adding a “display:none” style, as they are typically displayed in front of the actual content. In this case, it’s working different. It’s really redirecting to another page, precisely: http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/adblock/?dest=%2Farticle%2F537374%2Fwhat_difference_between_lenovo_thinkpad_t440_t440s_%2F.
So, dear pcworld mag. Here is the bad news for you: i will NOT disable my adblocker. Nor will i uninstall it. Sorry, dudes.
What i did:
1) open OSX Terminal (command line shell prompt)
2) wget http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/article/537374/what_difference_between_lenovo_thinkpad_t440_t440s_/
3) open index.html from my local harddisk with my webbrowser. Done !
Please don’t force users to disable their AdBlockers. Users have installed them for a good reason.
