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.

Why are you not complaining about that cable subscription that you pay hundreds a year for and are inundated with ads on YOUR tv?

Why not complain about that movie you saw where you paid 30-40 dollars in ticket and concessions and are seeing ads in the pre-roll?

Ads are everywhere....you don't want Ads? If it is sooooo onerous for you to have to pay with your impressions for data services you are using, go to Linux.
