"Black Mirror" ads can see through your ad blocker, targets only AdBlock users.

It was only a matter of time before Adblock sold the ability to target ad block users specifically would be used in creative fashions. First there was the Amnesty International ad that broke through the adblock barrier on May 12, the World Day Against Cyber Censorship. Now "Black Mirror", the dark satire show about modern society and how new technology invade our lives, uses the same technique to claim that the ad is watching you. It all feels a little Minority report for a brief second when you see it, if you haven't gone completely banner blind. Adblock sells ad space inside adblock these days, so if you are an Adblock user and visit TheNextWeb right now you will be greeted by this banner. The only way to escape it is by using Brave browser, one that filters out web banners while offering users a way to pay the sites they frequent via bitcoin.
