I love how people jump to the conclusion that whomever is implementing this is some crack-pot 3rd grade retard that thinks annoying a potential user with obtrusive advertisements mid-use is the best way to get something like this off the ground. Why would you even assume that? You don't think that the people putting something like this together don't already know that something like that would fail? Take the new(er) ad-based kindle that sells at a discounted price. Practically everyone that heard about this before it was released jumped to the conclusion that ads would be blasting the user constantly in mid-use, and said "screw you, no thanks," before it was found that the ads were only on the lock-screen, and not when someone was actively using their device. As if Amazon hadn't already thought that blasting people with ads mid-use wouldn't be annoying to the user. Same thing goes with this, just wait and see. For people that sure appreciate deals and things for free, y'all sure do seem opposed to this when we don't even know how it will be implemented.
