More Invasive Ads in Gmail?

Recommended Posts

check out this screenshot of my spam folder. note that the picture next to the ad is simply because i have the BetterSearch extension.

without BetterSearch:

however, i read a message from a google rep in a different forum saying that most of the time stuff like this is just an experiment and will be taken off quickly, simply to gauge user reaction.

EDIT: lmao, look at this ad in google. it promotes yahoo! :haha:

Word has it Yahoo is going to 1Gb [or more] some day real soon.

No need for geemail in my book.

Yes they are. The official amount is 1Gb, although I wouldn't be supprised if they upped it because og Gmail. They said you should expect the increase sometime in May.

It seems kind of amazing IMO. Just around 2 years ago all you could get for free was between 2Mb-6Mb.

space isnt the only reason why gmail is better than yahoo mail. yahoos other services included with mail like integrated news and weather and such are cool, but when it gets down to it, gmails got more features and is easier to use.

idk, i think theyre like AdSense, only different. i read an article saying that google was going to start changing the way AdWords and stuff, but i didnt think that meant something like adding ads like this. i guess these are sorta okay, though, since they take up less space than the former ads did. they are more invasive though, since theyre right in the center of the screen.

and i posted screenshots of them, so u should be able to get a fair idea of how they look.
