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.

That's true for free apps. These are apps that access microsoft's services and you've already payed for that by buying windows. A lot of apps are like that, they have a free version with ads and a paid version without. Similar to sites where you can browse without ads if you buy an account.
