Ok, I've been using the Boxee Box for a month and while I'm not crazy about the random movies that appear on the Home page, I also don't mind them. Heck, some of them have been really cool.
Last night I power the thing on to see what looks like an ad for the Wall Street Journal and another one for tax advice. Admittedly I didn't watch them (as I have no interest in them), so maybe I'm wrong about them being ads.
I was really disappointed to see this and it occurred to me that these slots could become typical ads with no other "fun" value and we have no control over it (AFAIK?). That would feel something like a "bait and switch" to me. Buy the box, enjoy it for a few months, then suffer as D-Link decides that it's time to start generating more ad revenue, resulting in commercials filling each of the slots on your home screen. I really don't want this in my living room, especially since this thing already costs more than most media streamers.
Am I off base here?
