Windows "Despite the fact that I've been using Windows 8 for the past three weeks, I somehow managed to overlook a rather stark feature in the OS: ads. No, we're not talking about ads cluttering up the desktop or login screen (thankfully), but rather ads that can be found inside of some Modern UI apps that Windows ships with. That includes Finance, Weather, Travel, News and so forth. Is it a problem? Let's tackle this from a couple of different angles." Hadn't seen them either - I don't use those applications - but this is pretty despicable.

Well, the ads are unobtrusive, and the apps they show up in are apps that have new content updated throughout the day, it doesn't bother me at all.

Personally I dislike the idea that you pay for a product and you STILL end up with ads. It would be a different setting if you didn't pay for it, but alas, that is definitely not the case here.

That said I don't have Windows 8 and I wouldn't use those apps anyways, so take my opinion with that in mind.
