Google Reader Has Ads!

I cannot find a mention of this in the press, and Mashable said “If this ever happens, it would cause a huge uproar”, but Google is putting ads in feeds now.

Those ads are not in the RSS feed.

What makes it really crazy is that they are making firefox run really slowly for me by firing off all this javascript every time an ad loads that freezes my scroll bar for some reason.

But wow, they are essentially monetizing publisher content and keeping it all for themselves.  That has to be a nice business.
