Nasdaq Sells Out, Prostitutes Web Site
Look at NASDAQ's main page and you see an intriguing little text link in the upper left.
"Buy stocks for $4"
Hmm, a new promotion? How can Nasdaq serve as market and seller? What's going on?
The link is an advertisement for Sharebuilder.com
Now don't get me wrong. Sharebuilder is an excellent site for someone who wants to dollar cost average their investing. I've written about and used it for almost two years now. Great site - prices are starting to climb - and fills a lovely niche.
What in blue blazes is it doing on Nasdaq's home page as a disguised link?
Not only that, but Nasdaq.com is using a pop-under ad. C'mon, how much revenue do you get for that relative to your cash flow?
I'm thoroughly disgusted at such an amateurish ploy, and I like advertising!
Suport Senator Clinton's candidacy by contributing here. Every little bit helps. If you don't want to give, at least sign up to learn more via email. Lots of grass-roots stuff already going on.
Your old music cannot sustain you through a life, not if you're someone who listens to music every day, at every opportunity. You need input, because pop music is about freshness, about Nelly Furtado and the maddeningly memorable fourth track on a first album by a band you saw on a late-night TV show. And no, that fourth track is not as good as anything on Pet Sounds or Blonde on Blonde or What's Going On, but when was the last time you played Pet Sounds? - Songbook by Nick Hornby
