Yahoo files e-book advert system patent applications

Just what the title says:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17657859

Quote:
It says in two US patent applications that ads for digital book readers have been "less than optimal" to date.

The filings suggest that users could be offered titles at a variety of prices depending on the ads' prominence

They add that the products shown could be determined by the type of book being read, or even the contents of a specific chapter, phrase or word.

Given Yahoo's track record to date I wouldn't worry too much about it. The most useful function at Yahoo is the ease of setting up throwaway email addresses, which is just about the only reason I ever visit.

I'm content the way that ads are on my Kindle right now - On my sleeping screen.

The day my ebooks start looking like the million dollar webpage is the day that I stop reading ebooks.
