Come on now, that's not even close. Having a free java
script that makes big words come at you isn't all that
impressive. Can it collect email addresses or other
demographics? Can it play audio if needed on qeueu.
Can you use frequency caps and target just USA or
non-USA visitors? The point is that companies like
www.EyeGrab.com and EyeBlaster get business becuase
they have invested time into programming the technology
which sites like ours and many others can use. And I
don't consider a 20 or 25% click through rate 'obsolete.'
