Skype to become more annoying

Ars Technica:

“[Skype has launched] “Conversation Ads” that will appear within the calling window during audio calls. Why are they called Conversation Ads? Because Skype is actually hoping users will discuss the content of the ads during phone calls. In other words, Skype (now owned by Microsoft) is hoping to interrupt the normal flow of human conversation, with advertisements targeted at users based on their location, gender, and age.”

If I ever discuss those ads during a call, I guarantee it’ll be something like, “I hate these stupid ads.”
