Despite having a reasonably fast internet connection, it is incredibly frustrating to try to review your content on separate pages. For that reason, I imagine most people simply will not spend their time reading this article.

I stopped reading after 3 pages because the page loading is very frustrated. I understand you're trying to get the most ad money possible, but you need to think big picture. Sure you got 3 page views out of me, but you lost all of my future page views. If you had been more reasonable, I might have read informationweek for years. That's more ad money.

Agreed most articles won't be read but that's no longer the objective. Objective is to lure readers in with a provocative title then get us to fumble around while being exposed to ads. I am about done with the madness.

A bunch of photos on separate pages with a block of text to the right so I have to scroll down and then back up to make any sense of what I'm looking at. That's not very reader-friendly.

re: Samsung Galaxy S 4: 11 Clever Tricks
Hey !! 2nd time this issue !!

It is now the second quarter of the new year.

Information Week only had one important New Year's Resolution this year. '"No Slide Show Articles with out a prominent 'View-as-one-page' link." How's that working out for you so far?

On my side of the fence, as Client/customer, You aren't doing well at all. Nearly every issue, you violate me with one of your Slide Show articles.

Please, re-examine your priorities. You do know how to do it - 'View as Single Page' link. It just isn't that hard and speaks volumes about your respect and concern for your Client / Customers.

Also, when I have to skip articles, I do not get to see your advertisers' messages.

I just ordered mine and
I cannot wait until it comes so that I can play and check out all the new
features and what I like/dislike about the new device as compared to the old
one. Maybe I should just wait for the Galaxy sXXGǪlol

re: Samsung Galaxy S 4: 11 Clever Tricks
Every time I visit an "article" that is structured as a slideshow, I see these same comments over and over again. I don't suppose IW will ever acknowledge them or change their approach in response to the ceaseless criticism of the same issue (i.e. generating slideshows for no reason except to collect more ad revenue). This is why I purposely enable Adblock on their entire site. If I have to be surprised by this kind of horrible UI design every 3 articles I come across, at least I won't be incentivizing them for it

Slide 5 of 13 is a FAIL. Proper Spanish: -+Cu+ntos a+os tiene el chico?

You can't just do a one-for-one word swap from a dictionary. So many machine translators do that ... I'm not shocked that S Translator is among them.
