Minority-Report-adsA few days ago, Google scared the world when the SEC report revealed Google that Google wants to place ads everywhere.

In fact, one of the items listed was placing ads in thermostats, and that created a whole big scare around their purchase of Nest. Google clarified they won't be putting ads in Nest, despite all the jokes from the industry that they would. But they won't.

But they will likely put ads in Google Glass, watches, cars, fridges and anywhere else their connected devices can reach.

Google said in the SEC filing they expect ads to go in more mobile devices and the definition of mobile device will expand. Google wrote:
