    Clearly they’re promoting the product. Why wouldn’t they? The only odd piece of the equation is that they deny the fact.

    This may be a case of “never say never.”

    Google has benefited from a super clean user interface for years. They probably won’t stray too far from that model. At the same time, they have a huge number of eyeballs on that page which puts them in an enviable position. If occasionally they decide to push a product or service, who can really fault them for anything other than making promises that they probably shouldn’t have made?
