Google distracts analysts and media with non-revenue projects such as G+ or driverless cars, cloaking its attack on thousands of smaller companies, and their jobs.Google has managed to boost its revenues by billions of dollars this year by attacking thousands of smaller businesses who make money from affiliate programs.
