Re: MS is to blame for this one

Advertising doesn't fund shit. All of the money to pay for it comes from our pockets eventually.

The big spenders seem to spend about 5-10+% of their revenue on marketing. That is added on to the cost of everything we buy.

So nothing that comes free with advertising is really free, we spend thousands of dollars a year on it when we buy products for the privilege of having ads inserted into content that we consume.

Personally I wish we'd drop the convoluted bullshit and just pay what things are worth.
