There better not be any ads after that

from here

While paying for Internet service is a technical requirement for using websites, paying for a phone is not - as evidence I point to all the sites I can currently use without a phone. If Google starts requiring a phone in order to log in then I can't see how to continue calling the service free, regardless of whether the money is going to them (although, considering how many phones are Android, it seems likely they're getting their cut).
