The way the technology was described, it sounded as though the
bookmark was enclosed within some kind of executable that made
itself responsible for going out and grabbing the content and
displaying it. So perhaps one could call it an "ACME Instant
Annoying Content Mark" rather than a bookmark, with the novel
concept being that one can skip the traditional step of "just
add water" (or a mouseclick).

As Mr. Horse would say, "No sir, I don't like it."
