Windows 7: Will windows 8 live tiles have advertisements in the future

Will windows 8 live tiles have advertisements in the future

I'm looking forward to the metro UI on windows 8. I think hybrid laptops are the future. Laptops where the screen becomes a tablet. Metro will be good for these devices. But will live tiles feature advertisements like on the xbox 360? I wouldn't find that acceptable, but it's always a possibility.

No. The lives are akin to what the Windows Phone has, no advertisements there.
The live titles in Windows 8 and Windows Phone are completely under the control of YOU.

I appreciate the response, but what makes xbox 360 different? Why does the 360 have advertisements and windows 8 will not? The xbox 360 is just as much my device as my windows 8 PC. Both hardware devices created by microsoft that use a form of live tiles.

The tiles on the Xbox are not the same tiles that are on Windows 8 and Windows Phone.

They already exist. See the last one (Asus) in this presentation: CES: Microsoft highlights Windows 7 PC designs - Videos | ZDNet

The other models are interesting too.

Clearing Advertisements
I have been shopping on the internet for a couple months for a new mattress. I have purchased one and on every site I go to I still get ads for mattresses. Will clearing my temporary files and cache get rid of those so I can get different ads? Thanks,
