Onebox makes baby cry

I clicked on a link to Onebox.com today, because it was recommended on a discussion list I’m on.  I had my two week old baby, Lidia, with me.  When you click on the site, it starts a flash file that has an annoying song playing along with a voice that makes babies cry like they’ve […]

Google Killer
