Well at first I thought for sure it was a joke with some of the language in that release. This article tries to shoot down those theories. Who knows...

Google mail may be shut down before it starts. You only get 1gig of space so that they can attach advertisements to your e-mail and even though you tell it to delete a message it's actually still saved on their server.

and the way they use the ad placement is from scanning the emails and using keywords to more or less see what ur talking about...a tid bit of a privacy issue as well :-?
