Onion Google Bashing

Some Huxlean-esque satire from the Onion regarding Google’s power, brilliant as always. I’m curious if the average person sees this and laughs, or sees this and cringes in fear.

I think this one is almost as good as “Google ‘Opt-Out’ Feature Lets Users Protect Privacy by Moving to Remote Village”:

    when video phones are the standard there will 100% be scrolling ads somewhere on the screen that will recognize speach and have ads to go with the conversation.

    Whispered ads in my ears while I talk? Sounds like a recipe for smashing my phone in frustration. Sounds like a good reason to beat the crap out of some marketing A -holes.
    Who would want this? What, we don’t have enough commercials blasted into our heads already?
    I can’t even watch most TV anymore for wanting to wretch at the constant “buy our crappy stuff” TV spots.
    Google, I liked your search engine but this lowers my opinion of your services considerably……
    If my phone ever whispers crap in my ear, goodbye cell phone!!
