Business Insider is a 'tabloid' tech blog hence the sensational headlines, in that respect they do it well.

 @vamatem as a writer myself, I would explain- we post first-- edit later 'sometimes' particularly for breaking news. So, some of the grammer errors and so on usually get corrected within 5-10 mins after publishing.

But then again you get the real errors- that's where the copy editors come in.

I don't have a problem with ads in general- as long as its NOT pop ups, automatic playing videos and the ones that take over the screen. 

We need advertising, and there will always be advertising, that's how we find out about products in general, whether we are concious of it or not.

People still interact with ads, thats why companies still pay for them

great picture and great post-- I completely agree but I still believe in ads, they need to change but I believe they can work- I think innovation will fix advertising on the net and make them more engaging. 

But I agree with the overall message- getting sponsorship trumps ads anyday

 @jacobrussell Just read a post on Techcrunch, rumour has it, that there may have been a bidding war according to Robert Scoble to drive it up to a 1 billion valuation

 @jacobrussell Did you read the article?-- so it was a choice to sell or get another round, how do you know Facebook where the only option Instagram had to sell?. Seeing that their rumoured evaluation was 500 million and Facebook paid 1 billion, that indicates other companies may have been interested or have made an offer
