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.

Remember back about 7 years ago, when Microsoft decided to launch a global anti-spam campaign? Here's a reminder if you forgot: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/press/2003/jun03/06-17spamenfor...

I wonder how that campaign is going. Did Microsoft win?

This would be a good time to take a look at the Windows 8 License to see if by installing it you agree to receive spam, otherwise lawsuit time.
