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.

No, I don't look down on people. I'm really sorry if that is the impression you got.

I'm just saying: learning a completely new job in an other field takes a lot of time and effort. And you are probably unemployed during that time.

And software (businesses trying to be more efficient) is working hard on taking away all the simple tasks.
