Google Ads: Said bye to predatory payday loan advertisements

Google has revealed that they are not going to display ads for payday lenders and their related products, a practice often referred to as predatory lending as it take advantage of low-income people.

Google Ads: Removed predatory payday loans advertisements


David Graff, director of global product policy at Google said via a post on their official blog, "They will no longer allow ads for loans with an APR of 36 percent or higher as well as loans where repayment is due within 60 days of the date of issue. Note that the former only applies to those in the US."

Financial expert Dave Ramsey describes payday loans as one of the worst financial decisions you can make, putting them in the same category as title pawning and tote-the-note car lots.

For those unfamiliar, a payday lender will let you write them a post-dated check that’s dated for the day you get paid. As an example, you can write a check for $225, hand it to the payday lender and they'll give you $200 cash on the spot. Come payday, they cash your $225 check.

A fee of $25 may not sound like much but when you do the math, you’ll see that the interest rate is astronomical. What’s worse is that payday lenders typically take advantage of lower income people, those that can least afford to throw away money in fees and interest.

In the blog post, he also wish that less people will be exposed to misleading and harmful products.

Google’s new ad policy goes into effect July 13, 2016.

Wine 1.9.24

Wine is an open source software that enables Linux, Mac, FreeBSD, and Solaris users to run Windows applications without a copy of Microsoft Windows. Wine is free software under constant development. Other platforms may benefit as well.

Wine makes it possible to take advantage of all the Unix strong points (stability, flexibility, remote administration) while still using the Windows applications you depend on. Unix has always made it possible to write powerful scripts. Wine makes it possible to call Windows applications from scripts that can also leverage the Unix environment to its full extent.

Wine makes it possible to access Windows applications remotely, even if they are a few thousand miles away. Wine makes it economical to use thin clients: simply install Wine on a Linux server, and voila, you can access these Windows applications from any X terminal. Wine can also be used to make existing Windows applications available on the Web by using VNC and its Java/HTML5 client.
