something I read in Wall Street Journal

  1. WSJ carried article this week about a new service to be offered by google. It will be called Gmail. It will be free but in return for using it you will agree to allow them to scan all your email for certain phrases and Key words and then pop up ads would pop up in response to these pharses and words. I was wondering who would agree to such a thing. "OK, you can read all my personal communications in return for giving me free email."NOT! Some of you might say that this sort of thing is going on to some degree already. This article specifically says that this particular program goes way beyond any privacy intrusions up to now. Even so they think some people will go for it but no one is sure how many.

    Privacy intrusions would be bad enough but POP UPS?

    They would have to offer free internet, not just free e-mail. Pop-ups are a pain though.
