Gmail


Is it just me or are the people going way out of line over this privacy crap? I mean comon here, I happen to love google and think it is great but when people whine about privacy when a BOT is going through for words, whoop die fking doo! They don't have people reading your email, it doesn't affect your email, nothing bad will happen because it happened, and know what? If you think its an invasion of privacy, DONT USE IT! Its like people whining about free services like hotmail, oh theres too many ads... well you don't pay, so what right do you have to whine? Beggars can't be choosers.

And could someone tell me when spymac started? Did it happen before or after Gmail was announced and said it gave 1 gig of mailbox room? Because I dunno. It seems a bit too much of a parrallel there.

And anyone hear about Microsoft putting billions into MSN or some search engine? They say they want to make the best one on the web and monopolize on that too. Great. Guess its not time to buy shares in google (didn't it have its IPO recently?)
