ADS! in Pageflakes!

I have been a fan of Pageflakes for some time, and am using it in a class this semester as a "scholarly communication" tool. I was shocked today to see forced ads on my class assignment page!
Ack! I knew that they had been bought by a company earlier this year, but am very suprised by this.
I love igoogle, but it doesn't have the pagecasting capabilities of Pageflakes. I wish google would make wegoogle!
So, what do do now!? Go to netvibes?
Phil Bradley has blogged about this too:
