I made one of my infrequent visits to Slashdot today, and saw a thread on Apple in-app advertisements being its next big business move. The source article at Bloomberg, which I linked, is labelled a "Technology" article, but it seems to me to be more opinion or speculation. Regardless, it seems to be taken as fact or certainty, and I would expect more articles criticizing or attacking Apple.

I just saw an article talking about ads in the Stocks app even for subscribers. I understand it is hard for a company to "leave money on the table" but this is jut not cool IMO. I really hope my pi-hole will keep my feeds clear as they have been.

As if we don’t get bombed with enough ads. Will Apple turn its own apps into something like the annoying third party apps that constantly interrupt what you are doing with ads. Yuk

Yeah, I'm not a fan. But, I don't use Apple News or Stocks in any meaningful way that adds would interrupt. Maps, however, would annoy the hell out of me. If Apple makes apps like that, or Notes, or Reminders, into add nests then I might have to find alternatives.
