PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android and iPhone users [...] will also experience BlackBerry's ad content in the form of mobile takeovers starting the week of March 25. Those mobile takeovers will fill your screen with what looks like a BlackBerry 10's, demoing a specific feature like its photo 'Time Shift' capability that allows you to scroll through several captured options for each face in a picture." Yes. BlackBerry is going to run ads that hijack your entire smartphone's display. Sigh.

Nothing is more infuriating than installing a "free" app and finding out it's ad-ware. Ad-ware does not equal freeware! Developers should know the difference and not misrepresent their products.
