I often think that I sure hope that Google sticks to "don't be evil" because if they decided to be evil they could do a lot of damage since they know so much about us. In p articular google ads (the part of google that, you know, actually generates revenue) are scary. The google system knows about every good or service for which I have shown a hint of interest.
So I am delighted that I was a good mark for a scram product which the ad claims will teach me English in my sleep.
Also New York magazine thinks that if I read Jon Chait on Putin, I am probably interested in Pokemon's in Rihanna's booty (but the insights of New York magazine never struck me as frighteningly well informed)
