    I hate ads. I know, you really cannot avoid them. They permeate every facet of our lives, but I have made it my mission (as hopeless and maybe insane as it sounds) to limit my exposure. That's why I have cut my cable, opted out of as much junk mail as I can etc. It is also one reason why I still use BB10 and a Passport. Now, it seems, according to these guys: Google Maps: Ads are coming soon to local searches | BGR Google Maps is about to become flooded with ads. Actually, it won't affect me because I never use GM anyway. But I am curious to hear from CB'ers if they will try other mapping apps if this happens. What say ye?

    Depends on how 'smart' the ads are and how often. We already know it will be localized so if one searches for nearest Starbucks and an ad for a free cup of coffee at a competing shop right next door might be nice. But if the ads spam to you for no rhyme or reason then it will turn people off.
