A few months after W8 has actually been released, it will be interesting to see what ordinary users Metro screens look like.
I'm expecting that a lot of them will have dozens of "Live Tiles" running adverts 24/7.
It will probably be like toolbars in IE6.
Adverts on live tiles, you're serious right?
Yes, of course! Why do you think Microsoft (aka M$) is forcing the Start Screen to pop up everytime you boot W8? Does the Start Menu pops up when you boot W7? From all the snapshots I'v seen one forth of the tiles are adds already. Another forth are irrelevant tabloid headlines. I'm sure hackers are working on ways to put adds on your Start Screen as we speak. Bigger fishes negotiate with M$ directly. Metro will unfold an advert bonanza. It's the perfect platform for spamming!Originally Posted by Coke
