I have disabled Google's targeted advertisement for reasons several weeks ago, and I have observed something really interesting : most of the advertisement I get now is for ... soft porn comics or for some kind of totally funny medical treatments against cancer ?! At first, I did not get that it had to do with my change of settings, so reinstalled browsers, run anti-viruses etc.. thinking I had gotten some kind of malware, but nothing of this kind, and this was on all my devices - so I realized this seems to be the default kind of advertisement I get when all "personal" settings in Google's ads system are disabled.

I wonder how much intention is put in this from Google - I mean, most of these ads are quite embarrassing on the long run, my kids are sometimes using my phone for a quick google search, I sometimes show something from my browser to other people, and coming across barely hidden explicit content is no fun. I would expect anybody confronted to this to switch on again the targeted advertisement, which is why I tend to think this may be intended...

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
