The Wall Street Journal:
Advertising may be coming to your thermostat and lots of other strange places, courtesy of Google.
In a December letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission, which was disclosed Tuesday, the search giant said that it could be serving ads and other content on “refrigerators, car dashboards, thermostats, glasses, and watches, to name just a few possibilities.”
This is a key differentiator for people who prefer Apple’s offerings to Google’s. We don’t like ads. So please stop trying to tell us there’s no difference and the only reason we buy Apple products is because we’re mindless zealots.
(Just kidding. I know people won’t stop saying that.)
