Google running Verizon ads on homepage from News

Verizon has been putting an amazing amount of money into their new DROID Does campaign, from TV spots to buying out Times Square for a day.  This past week, they’ve accomplished something no other company has done, assimilation of the Google homepage.  Prior to this week, no advertiser has ever made a deal with the search giant to feature a product or service on the homepage.  Verizon has somehow, and by somehow we mean with large sums of cash, convinced Google to allow a single line of advertising to appear below their search bar.  The line reads “New! The Droid is on sale now. Learn more.”  Will we continue to see Google allow advertising like this, or is it a one time thing?  Only time will tell.
