Advertising on search page!???? Gyrogearloose 8/28/12 5:45 AM

What's with the advertising by Google on the web search page???
Must I endure an annoying advertisement for a Google product every time I search for something?
I hate Bing, but this will drive me to revisit it.
 
Please don't mess up Google search!!!!

Not sure what Google Instant has to do with the annoying advertisement for the $199 Google Tablet?

But in any case, yes.  I disabled Google instant.  I find it annoying and distracting to have stuff pop up while I'm still trying to figure out what I want to search for.
I'm quite happy to finish my thought and then, and only then, see what pops up.

No need to read if you don't want.
 
I really don't care to share my complaint with you, but don't see any way to complain directly to Google. 
If you know of a way to submit a comment/complaint directly then please let me know and I'll use it.

A bit defensive don't you think?
Google has plenty of opportunities to make money without resorting to in-your-face self serving stuff on the search page that has otherwise remained pristine.

If I am one of the "little people" then I take that as a compliment.  I wouldn't want to be grouped among the arrogant God wannabe's.
 
This is the first time that I've noticed an objectionable in-your-face advertisement in that location.
On the other hand, I usually have enjoyed the 'Google' art.
