Windows There's been a bunch of Windows Phone 7 reviews out there, and most of them come to the same conclusion: great piece of software for a 1.0 release, but it does miss a few vital features. The Ars Technica review, as usual very in-depth, highlights one particular aspect of the platform that speaks to me: Windows Phone 7 has a sense of humour.

Nope, I refuse to buy a phone that it's OS is an "Ad Server".

Then you won't buy a phone at all. I guarantee you that any phone with an app store of some kind will have a way to serve ads. Hell, even the $30 throwaway prepaid phone from the supermarket will have some sort of advertising in the interface, even if it's just for a silly JME game or ringtone clearing house.

Or to put it another way:

Welcome to the 21st century, where all those old dystopian sci-fi novels and movies got at least one thing right: Advertising Everywhere! In case you hadn't noticed, Earth is populated by an overwhelmingly capitalist society, geared towards commerce and prosperity.

Get used to it.
