    With the massive amounts of Chromebooks being sold to schools, this move only makes sense for Google.

    But yes, this is very worrying.

    Are they going to deck out a free candy van and roam around the neighborhoods?

    The 12ish age range has been the focus of recording companies for a new years now. Especially the tweenage girl market.

    They're already using balloons to entice the kids.

    Google: "Git some! Git some! Git some, yeah, yeah, yeah! Anyone who clicks, is a consumer. Anyone who doesn't click, is a well-disciplined consumer! You guys oughta do a story about me sometime!"

    Reporter: Why should we do a story about you?

    Google: 'Cuz I'm so fuckin' good! I done got me ads in emails, websites, tracking people, tons of mining all sold to the highest bidder. Plus millions of youtube ads, too! Them's all confirmed!

    Reporter: "Do you target women and children?"

    Google: "Sometimes"

    Reporter: "How do you target women and children?"

    Google: "Easy, you just don't lead 'em so much!"
