Apple Steve Jobs once considered an ad-supported version of Mac OS 9. Users would see a 60-second Apple-updated commercial during boot, as well as several other ads throughout the system. This all was tied to selling operating system updates - "this is how Microsoft does it... It's like printing money", Jobs said. While the idea was financially sound, Apple decided against it because too many negatives arose.

I [Got a rash that will not go away... Zarvirax!] agree. However it could lead to invasive [Free prostrate checks of over 50s] targeted adds based on [Ozonate! get rid of that lingering odour] how the computer is used.

I would love to [last longer with rumptonix] hear other view points.
