About 96% of Google's revenue comes from advertising. It is an advertising company.
They are upholding the T&C that is in the agreement
They announced yesterday that they were killing Google reader.
Google - the world's largest online ad broker - sees no reason to worry about the addition of ad-blocking extensions to its Chrome browser. Online advertisers will ensure their ads aren't too annoying, the company says, and netizens will ultimately realize that online advertising is a good thing.
