[ExtremeTech] Windows 10 now shows ads on the lock screen — here’s how to kill them - Page 4

post #31 of 147
I only defend against attacks from the idocracy. This article by extremetech is pure sensationalism.

The REAL Story in the source of the source mostly talks about the limits of games purchased from the Windows Store.

The feature in question does not display ads. Its simply a text box and nothing more.

I don't know you guys,but when something offers me an on/off option,i think it means it's optional.

So the correct title shouldn't be "Windows 10 now offers optional ads"? rolleyes.gif

Also this is not present on Windows 10 TH2.

Haha wouldn't be the first time ExtremeTech has jumped the gun and editorialized a topic.
(See their recent attempt to antagonize Guru3D)

And THIS is why I won't "upgrade" my paid Windows 7 installs for this ad supported NONSENSE. This is the tip of the iceberg. Windows is going full Google. They will whore out any piece of the OS that gets them revenue.

We need a new OS now more than ever.

Don't be disheartened by the defense... at least those "attitudes" come out to round out the discussion. Over the years, I realize that makes OCN more colorful... just put on tinted/polarized lens when a certain band gets too saturated.
post #39 of 147
I just noticed this, but OCN has ads ALL OVER THE PLACE! Where is the off switch for that?

This seems a sensationalist title without any proof to get clicks.
Has ANYONE seen these so-called ads? Because i sure haven't.

The big issue here however is the windows store.
