Not sure this is old news or not but I'm now seeing the little shopping cart icons on the ads now.

Yeah, I just noticed this, too. Apparently, everyone added Google Shopping Cart last night.

Clearly a screwup by Google. Will probably be fixed by the afternoon.

It looks like G$$G activated the brain implants with an order to "use google checkout".

Google's way to show us all how cool the icon looks and to
get us all to sign up. More then likely, just a glitch that
will be fixed shortly.

Not use to the icons, seem distracting to me, wonder what
the average Joe thinks of them.

Looks like it's fixed now, no longer see them on the ads that I monitor.

Uh Oh. Now that this has been discovered, we'll have to revert back to the way it was. :)

Gotta work fast...

Thanks for that AWA, I'll start taking the tin foil down now.

At least we now know how crappy it looks like when every ad has the icon.
