What do you mean text-based PPC? Google has always had that. What's different now?

May be not all data center has been upgraded yet.
As for the PPC google used background color to differentiate the PPC on right side, in new look there is no back ground in PPC ads and it's more wider than previous ad display with frame dividing organic and ppc result.

Yep, yep, yep. That's what they're going towards. That new design makes it perfectly clear!

Personally, I think this design de-emphasizes AdWords. Now they look just like that right-hand column that everyone ignores on every web site. It'll be interesting to see the effect on CTR.

I do remember reading about this distinction about information sites on left and commercial sites on the right. But I am not sure how they would distinguish. I have a commercial site but I do plan to spend a lot time, effort and money on making it into the best information site in it's field (hoping to convert some of that traffic looking for free stuff into sales). This site too falls in this category where there is lots of free information but also a service being sold. Will google do it on domain extension (.com/.org) ..doesnt make sense to me.
Will love to read more on this...any threads/links etc ?

Obviously, it was a miserable failure as we saw, so it appears they've abandoned the idea for now (if they even really were). I'm sure they're continuing to work on it behind the scenes though.
Whether they can ever actually get something like that to work is hard to say. And whether the public will buy into it is another story.
Again, this is just my opinion. To my knowledge, nobody at Google has ever said they were doing this.
