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.

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 ?

You would be surprised how many taxi-drivers and bartenders own a Master degree in Philosophy...
