Vintage computing, old video games

I feel like there are a lot of ads in day to day life.

Mail
Billboards
Every web site
At the cinema, before the movie
On movie discs, before the movie
Operating system
Software installation menus
Voip software now
News sources
Streaming videos, television
FM radio stations or streaming services that have ads

The targeted ads are especially obnoxious. Kudos to Netflix and Duck Duck Go (random examples) for trying to go against this trend.

There’s the saying, “If the product is free, you are the product”.

Question: What are your techniques you use for reducing the presence of ads in your day-to-day?
Do you bother?
