    This could be interesting! :)

    Whether it's a cynical move or not, Apple's upcoming release of iOS 9 can give users the ability to block ads on a mobile browser. This is a serious concern for online advertisers.

    As Apple prepares to release iOS 9 -- the company's latest version of its mobile operating system -- later this month to coincide with what many believe is the debut of the iPhone 6s, one feature that is built into the new version of iOS is getting a lot of attention for its disruptive potential to the current economic model of the Internet.

    People don't like seeing ads, but they like things to be free. The best of both worlds (people using ad-block software now) won't last forever if more and more people aren't seeing ads.

    We'll see how it all works out in the end.

    It's all about balance, I guess.

    I'm just afraid it'll lead to more annoyance when trying to access sites. Certain ads (popups, autoplay, etc) are annoying, but answering those darn questionnaires before being able to read an article on certain sites is worse :confused:

    Does this make me a lazy person? Possibly.

    I've heard rumors that some people would be interested in buying premium memberships for some sites, but that they aren't offered... :/
