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.

If I buy an app, you're damn right I'll bitch if I see an ad in it. When a publisher puts out an ad-supported free app and an ad-free paid app, it makes sense. When a publisher keeps ads even in the paid version, they don't get my money. I'm not paying twice for the same thing.
