If the ads on a site are so obstructive or malicious that you want to block them then stop using that site. Blocking ads only encourages site operators to use more aggressive ad serving tactics and resorting to that kind of subsidized assault on the user is usually an indicator that the site doesn't have anything useful on it in the first place.

This is not a security camera, this is a diagnostic tool, a high speed camera is the micrometer of video analysis, when you need to trouble shoot a high speed, complicated process this is the only way. This camera gives decent performance at an order of magnitude cheaper than all of it's competitors. Having a double digit resolution at 18,000fps sounds crappy but when you have a 3cm x 5cm area of interest it only takes a few more seconds of setup to make sure you get the data you need. High speed cameras are to security cameras what an oscilloscope is to a multi-meter, they are for completely different jobs.

Did they say they were going to wire your eyes open and give you the AdSence Ludovico treatment? No, they are giving people the option to reduce the price of an appliance by having ads show up on it. If there is an option to buy full price with ads disabled (like most ad revenue based apps) then what's so evil about it?
