This as part of its Advertising Week marketing push in New York City this week.

      Ok then. I dont know how you expect to get free software and news without it. Since you are using this as a reason to not use Windows 8, it seems a bit hypocritical that you are here with all the advertising. In fact, I wonder how you use the internet at all.

        this is not a relevant comparison. For one, visiting a news site on the web comes with totally different expectations to using a core Windows application. I didn’t hear any mention of free apps and news being the trade-off with getting the ads, all I saw were core apps that come with Windows forcing you to have ads nearby.
