Google is thoroughly evil, and has been since the moment they became an advertising company instead of a technology company.
But... they have always been an advertising company. When they went public in 2004, only 1% of their revenue came from non-advertising sources. Now that's 13% because they've diversified out a bit.
If anything, they started off as an advertising company and became a technology company.
It was founded in 1998, and certainly not as an advertising company. That they went public basically just reinforces my point: it's all about the Benjamins.
Of course they're in it to make money, they're a company not a charity.
What are you claiming their revenue stream in 1998 was, if not advertising?
