But from time to time, Google uses the power of its homepage to advertise its own products.

WhatsApp to monetize by selling ads and charging business users

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

How to go about bringing in revenue has been a problem Facebook has failed to solve in the four years since it acquired WhatsApp. The world's most popular messaging app cost roughly $22 billion, but other than a brief experiment with charging an annual 99-cent subscription fee, there has been no clear plan on how to monetize the service.

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

Samsung and Apple burning each other in commercials is a long-standing tradition at this point. Samsung's recent ads have been lackluster, like the recent 'Moving On' commercial that pitted the Galaxy S9 against... a four year-old iPhone. The company is now back with a new 'Ingenious' ad campaign, this time targeting the iPhone X.

There are four ads so far. There's 'Fast Charger,' which points out that the iPhone X doesn't ship with a quick charger (you have to buy a USB Type-C to Lightning cable, as well as a Type-C wall adapter).
