Being as poor as I am that isn't possible.
Ah, but you wouldn't be so poor if prices weren't hiked up as high through associated advertising costs... your dollar would go further without advertising cost.
Top that off with Google ads are blocked.
Is that because your dollar doesn't go very far and you get green with envy at all them loverly things you can't afford ... or because you hate internet ads as much as I do???
And once again you still don't get it. You blame Google for what happened to your ex brother in law. Guess what? Any other search engine COULD have done the same thing. This is NOT limited to just Google. Why can't you see that?
Ah, but I do get it! It's not about what they can do, but what they actually do. Sure, any other search engine could have produced those results... but none did. That says to me that Google completely lacks integrity and is morally corrupt.
As for the rest of your drivel your just beating a dead horse as we all know better.
You know better, eh! You know, then, that Google won't sell your information (something that is sensitive and possibly detrimental to your well-being) to the highest bidder... anyone willing to hand 'em a buck??? Don't be so naive as to think they never would... they're in the business of profitting from information. Google is an evil Capitalist pig that cares nothing for your well being, nor anyone else's but its own.
Your one bad experience dosen't make Google a bad company.
Doesn't make it a good one, either. Once a company compromises its integrity, standards fall and it knows no boundaries. And I'll bet my lefty that my former brother-in-law's bad experience is only one of many, many more.
Google STILL has the best search engine on the net.
So it might be (depending on your point of view)... but at what cost? At who's expense? The results on my former brother-in-law (and the way they were portrayed) compromised his integrity. To many they would have cast a shadow on his character. Now tell me that's right!
And earning money from ads is NOT a crime.
No, it is not! However, when a company lacks scruples, it becomes capable of doing anything... and when it neglects the privacy of others to derive profit, it becomes evil, pure and simple. Moreover, once it crosses one boundary, nothing is sacred and others soon fall due to the lure of the almighty dollar.
So, kona, it's not about what Google is good at, it's about what it is bad at. In Google's case, that is observing privacy, ethics and common decency. Google puts profit above all else... robbing everybody (Peter) to pay (Paul) itself.
