According to a December letter sent to the Securities and Exchange Commission, which became public on Tuesday, Google hopes to put ads “on refrigerators, car dashboards, thermostats, glasses, and watches, to name just a few possibilities.”

  1. Well, I guess I will have to do without refrigerators, car dashboards, thermostats, glasses, and watches, to name just a few devices.

  2. Are you opposed to Google or advertising?

  3. Weren’t we just talking about how hard it is to get staff who aren’t stoners?

  4. @rob: advertising.

  5. John, some strategically placed electrical tape will take care of those ads. :)

  6. How will I be able to read adds on the car’s dashboard when I’m on the phone all the time?

  7. @chas: Ah, good point! Clearly, this is a cunning plan to encourage acceptance of the self-driving car – provided by the Big G.
