Google back in 2005:

There will be no banner ads on the Google homepage or web search results pages.

Google today:

The company confirmed to the Guardian that it is testing a system with about 30 advertisers in the US in which it shows banner ads for companies including SouthWest Airlines on pages which include them in web search results.

And people wonder why I have zero trust in companies.

The Industrial Revolution also made many people unemployed, depending how you look at it. It took 40 to over a 100 years to recover those jobs.

Probably because the next generation of people were educated to do other jobs.

The original jobs were gone.

As automation and robotics improve, the tasks they can do will be more complicated, which takes a human more time to learn to do a better job, eventually you can't learn a completely new job fast enough to keep up with that.

If you are a taxi-driver and your job is gone. What will be your next job ? If you were good at doing something else, you probably wouldn't have chosen taxi-driving in the first place. Am I right ?
