It’s a half hour before April Fools and the article was published on March 31st in the afternoon, so I think it’s on the up-and-up. It says that Google is going to offer free e-mail with 1GB of storage, all searchable. Their revenue will come from advertisements inserted into outgoing messages based on the message content. Yahoo already adds advertisements, but they have nothing to do with the content. It could be a source of entertainment to see what the ads that your e-mails are associated with.
