So I’m logged into GMail and I see some strange ads down in the lower right hand corner.
So the person’s name in the email happened to be “John. While the first two aren’t relevant I get how they got there. The bottom block on the other hand is a bit more perplexing. I don’t have a clue who “holland john” is but I’ve heard of Elton John, and it doesn’t require any stretch of the imagination to realize John R Patrick and John A Booth are real names. Now Elton John doesn’t strike as a Gmail kind of guy, but I really don’t think it’s the Elton John any way. However my curiosity gets the better of me and I click away.
The landing page leaves me less than enthused and feeling oh so abused
Not sure what would have been on the other side of the click and have been useful without a privacy invasion, maybe some Google/Gmail/LinkedIn hybrid (somewhere in Mountain View somebody just found a 20% project) but Elton John tickets while contextually relevant was not situation ally relevant at all.
