Here is the latest gem of an advert to reach me on GMail’s advertising:

rtnews

The translation is “Read now what happened in Iraq between Bush and the reporter Muntathir Al-Zaidi”. I have no idea why they advertised this to me (or this, or this), but I was so fascinated by who “they” were today: Russia Today’s Arabic edition. It seems RT has an entire web page devoted to the shoe incident, with news stories from all over the Arab world.

This morning I was considering paying for Relenta (started by another Russian) as a serious producitivity improvement, but honestly the thought of losing out on the entertainment of GMail adverts saddens me.
