Help me understand, please!

Hello everyone
For a long time, in everyday life, we are exposed to advertising. This has happened, does happen and also will happen, for many years no doubt. On tv, newspapers, magazines, online, on this website and on our iPhone there's ads. Unfortunately the ads on our iPhone are, to be put nicely, rubbish. So, why is everyone hating on the upcoming iAds? They look brilliant, especially compared to those currently used in Apps.
If you haven't seen the video of the OS 4.0 update, which includes a demo of iAds it can be found under the Apple podcast on iTunes.

I'm not trying to start a big argument, I'm just failing to see the disadvantages of them. Ads are and always will be on the iPhone, so why are people not liking the idea of iAds?

Thanks
Elliot

iAds are fine, just people don't want to see them in paid apps, because if you pay for an app you should not be blitzed with sponsors and logos when you have already shelled out some cash

Unfortunately, many people don't see that side of it.
