>> The preference of "Show Links To The Music Store" is there there in the General preferences menu.

Yes, but if you turn off the music store (Preferences > Parental (!) > Disable Music Store), these arrows disappear.

One of the great things about Apple was that they wrote software that does what I want, not what their marketers have figured out would be a good way for them to leverage against me in the future. iTunes played and ripped MP3s, there were no default AOL ad icons, MSN ads, MS Chat in the tray, updater tied to a particulat browser, etc.

Clearly that has now changed. Every Apple product now has tie-ins to other Apple products and services that are for sale. These aren't just "integrated" features, they are ads (or "suggestions to buy"). I for one don't like it.
