About Nate Hoffelder (11166 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. The Forbes article is blocked by their “We own your web browser” claim.

  2. You sure? I use an ad-blocker, and all I get is a thing that has me wait a few seconds, then click through to see the article. Maybe try anonymous browsing mode?

  3. I’m using ublock, no issues. I’m wondering if this is adblock plus? Ditto with the GQ issue posted yesterday. I believe Adblock plus allows websites to pay them money to disable their add-on on their sites.

  4. I get a splash page telling me to switch of my Ad Blocker (I’m not using one, just standard Chrome/PC no plug-ins), and a “Proceed to Article” type button in the top right. When I click that, it thanks me for turning off my ad blocker (again, not using one), and then continues to the article. First time I’ve seen that on Forbes, but might not have been there for a few weeks. Looks like there has been a redesign.

  5. With the Forbes article on my win 10 tablet using–Adblock Plus and ghostery–I get the turn off your ad blocker, with my Linux Mint PC using–Adblock Plus and ghostery–goes straight to the article.
