Ads By Gooooooooooo...ooooooooogle
Google is doing some experimenting with branding their ads right now. Seems kind of annoying to me, but whatever. I still want the lines back in the ads that created individual boxes for each ad.

Also, more importantly....

Google has now opened up the ability for publishers to have multiple ad units on their websites. The number is limited to three, but will be showing different ads on each creative. You can also customize the colors for each ad.

If you're someone that hasn't set an alternate ad for your adsense units, then there's a new solution for you. You can just have the ad collapse to nothing instead of showing a PSA. Details on implementing this can be found at
