Hear, hear. Google's 'designers' are assholes of the highest order. As you say - they will FORCE this shit on us tomorrow, precisely because MOST of us turn it off and don't want their crap - and hence the 'designers' will be out of a job, unless they FORCE this bullshit on everybody. Unbelievable.

Would you like me to call you a waambulance?

That's only half the story though. Individual mutations that lead to more successful traits make that particular organism more likely to survive, procreate and pass on the successful trait, thus changing the species over time. So while they would specifically mutate to more efficiently eat the whale, those that mutated to be more efficient consumers ouwld survive better, and so - evolution.
