    When I log into this site I now get a radio shack pop up ad. I never had this happen before.

    I have a Macbook air with the latest OS.

    Is anyone else getting this bar pop up bar on the bottom of the screen.

    Second when I go to the apple site a different site takes over and there home page pops up, I cant get to apples home page I get virtue publishers web site.\

    Is it possible my mac has a virus.

    I know this is off topic but this is where i trust.

    Please help

    another glitch with it is that you cant click on any links on the bottom of the page where the Ad was before I X it off, it has to be the most annoying thing EVER

    Radio shack is for tools anyway. WTF WTF !!!!

    Macrumors has good forums if your looking for iphone related stuff, A lot more traffic as well. Mac-forums.com is also good.

    Yeah it's really annoying. it used to pop up for me every once in a while, but now it pops up every time i got somewhere different on the website. It is really annoying, but from the site owner's point of view. They are probably making a bundle on advertising from radio shack.

    Can anyone get onto Apples web site, I get redirected to another website Vitrue Publisher

    The only tab that opens on apples site is the store tab if I click on the home page this other site pops up. If I click on ipad or iphone or any other link I get error URL cant be found.

    Are we being taken over by aliens

    True, Just wish they made it less intrusive. There is plenty of space to the left and right of the page that isn't being used for anything. Not user friendly at all.

    It is possible. Highly unlikely though. But you can download an anti-virus app and run a scan if you feel the need. There are a few free ones in the mac app store. I myself run no anti-virus on my mac.

    It's a flash banner ad. One nice thing about no flash on the iPhone.

    I hope enough people complain maybe they will move it.

    Has anyone noticed that you cant click on a link on the bottom inch of the web site. This occurs after i X off the stupid pop up.

    This is a Major Bummer, I cant stand when site do this, it is such a reflection of the GREED in this country.

    I would pay $ 20 a year not to have that crap on here

    Yeah it's annoying, Nothing I'm gonna start a petition over or anything though. And yeah I noticed that you cant click on anything that was under it unless you scroll down to get it above the area that the ad was.

    I can't see this being a permanent thing or lasting too long. Maybe when i wake up, it'll be gone.

    Let's just wish it away!
