the "apps" he mentions are weather, travel, news and finance, which are just portal apps to web content, which is ad supported. you see ads if you go to bbc.co.uk or weather.com, too.

You can use whatever label you want but the fact is that they put ads in the main display of the default apps. Go look at the music app too, its full of ads. That's some tacky crap you would expect from a startup, not Microsoft. Metro is a hard enough sell without even more shit. Ads in the shitter are next, I'm sure someone is working on that somewhere.
