Google on a Slippery Slope

I've always loved the purity of the Google vision to provide fast access to all the world's information. The Google team has always seemed to care more about the user experience than about making money. But today I glimpsed something that scares me and makes me wonder who is in charge at Google anymore. The pioneers who built the search engine were purists. But the settlers who are being hired at Google by the hundreds are probably more driven by making money than anything else.
