Who wants to pay to be the product?

from here and here

I can't get over how exploitative it is for Google to charge people for a service and then turn around and collect data about them anyway. That's supposed to be how you monetize services that users AREN'T paying for the service. If I'm paying for a service, I expect my fees to be adequate to reimburse the vendor for their services. I certainly don't expect to be used in that manner. 

I guess their motto of "Don't be evil" really is dead.
