Good news for everyone who's been having issues with the experimental ad! The problem was officially dogpiled and it looks like we've managed to patch things up by pulling the Flash and replacing it with something much more browser friendly.
Just a quick word to our readers: we're sorry for the trouble caused, but thanks and much love for being good sports. We got a ton of really interesting and useful feedback, and we know you wouldn't care if you didn't love Engadget and have high standards for our site. (Of course, we'd also like to give a shout out to everyone on the business side who jumped in to help out and fix this thing.) So, you know, feel free to disengage your ad blockers, the coast is clear.
