Google Hopes to Disaggregate Carriers with gPhone
While I'd agree that dealing with ads is annoying, I think there may be another way to look at it. Companies will always seek a way to reach their customers. This can take many different forms, but they all fall under the guise of "advertisement". And make no mistake, they will make every effort to reach you. If it's not on your TV, it will be via email. If not via email, it will be on your phone. If it's not on your phone, it will be... You get the point.
So, it would seem that short of living in the woods we'll have to deal with ads in one form or another. Granted, some are less intrusive than others, but they will always be around and will always be looking for new ways to "intrude" into our consciousness. We might as well get something free for dealing with them. Right?...
