Default infoSync Goes World Wide

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.infosyncworld.com/' target='_blank'>http://www.infosyncworld.com/</a><br /><br /></div>infoSync has been one of the top mobility sites on the Web for the past couple of years (how long have they been around for anyway?), and I've always considered their design and writing something to strive for. But they've had a hard to remember domain - infosync.no. I remember urging Jorgen to get a "real" domain last year at Mobius 2002 Europe, and it looks like he finally followed my advice. :wink: infosyncworld.com is much easier to remember, and I'm sure it will bring infoSync to an even wider audience.<br /><br />Be sure to have your pop-up blockers active though - every page I went to dished up a pop-up or pop-under window. :? Advertising times are rough all over, so remember: when you see a banner, help the site out by clicking on it. Most advertisers don't understand the importance of branding and instead are fixated on click-through rates. But I digress...go visit infoSync World!

InfoSync is really a great site ...and I go to that site every week, but someone from the W3 Consortiums has to outlaw these pop up banners.

Work around on the pop up banners. Continue to use www.infosync.no.
I tried it, and no pop ups appeared.

I use Safari on OSX and of course no pop ads. This is one thing I love about surfing no pop ups! Infosync has been a favorite of mine for a very long time, I love their site and high quality pictures. The new revised pocketpc thoughts site has a great look too and I come here more often now.

It's not an issue with me running Avant Browser, or any of the dozens of pop-up blockers on the PC either. Pop-up blocking isn't some magical Mac pixie dust.... :roll:

As a Norwegian I love Infosync, and I don't understand how a longer domain-name makes it easier to remember!?

BTW; I can't relate to the pop-ups... There almost no pop-ups there as I can see??? But I have bookmarked the norwegian domain (.no), so maybe it's only on the .com domain that the pop-ups work?

Using a machine with no pop-up blocker...

Went to the site, navigated around, read some stories, not one pop-up or pop-under...

Maybe they had a change of mind and decided against the ads???

I had zero popups. I clicked on a whole bunch of stories, and surfed around for a fair bit of time.

If you find you're getting a lot of pop-ups, check your machine for that Gator software, or just get ad-aware and make sure there isn't anything hiding on your machine.
