Another example of how manipulative adtech has become:

Alongside this, Google is also suggesting a machine learning-based means to separate players who are likely to buy IAPs and those who are not. With that information, the developer can show ads to the latter group while leaving the former alone (in order to keep from p*** them off)
One more step down the ladder of the user being a product, and the experience being designed to extract the most money out of the product. The game player is being treated as cattle bring milked.

HTML email reborn, as Google brings AMP to your inbox
With AMP embeds, email can now contain rich interactivity, not just text and pictures.
...
Those limitations are arguably what enable AMP's interactivity in email. It would be dangerous to support the browser's full, unrestricted range of JavaScript capabilities in an HTML email, but that same danger doesn't exist for an AMP email, because the JavaScript library is carefully controlled and limited. AMP emails can't perform arbitrary scripting; instead, they opt into certain prepackaged pieces of behavior that they want to use.

Inside the Google employee backlash against the Heritage Foundation
‘They think that some of our colleagues either do not or should not exist’
...
But some members of the new board drew immediate scrutiny, especially Kay Coles James, president of the conservative Heritage Foundation. On social media, some characterized the decision as an attempt to cater to conservatives at the expense of true expertise in the field. By Saturday, one AI expert who was invited to the board had dropped out, vaguely noting that it may not be “the right forum” for the work.
