      Sweet Christ. This is just further validation that our nightmare future of "everything is a goddamn ad" will never end.

        Yeah I don’t want to hear even a quaver of “companies must monetize your information” to survive.

        I was trying to find reviews of wireless earbuds and everything was either an ad or an AI generated pages that exists for clicks. No information at all. Even reviews on amazon are really suspect.

          Reviews of anything from anywhere are pretty much useless now. It's all paid shills as far as you can see.

      I wonder if Google structures the corporate tax returns so that none of that is profit.

          There's a lot of flexibility in corporate taxes. A company could be making massive profits and still somehow structure it so that there are tax write offs that last several years into the future.
