Google to start offering 1 Gig E-mail accounts

But there's a catch to get all that space: Google's automated bots read your e-mail and place contextual ads in the e-mail. So you get free, large-storage e-mail in turn for a ton of space. Full story.

(Yes, I know today's April 1st, so take all of this with a grain of salt -- but I heard it on CBS News this morning, as well as noticed a few sites running stories about it so maybe it is legit? Or they fooled a lot of people. The folks at SlashDot don't think it's legit, and I'm tending to agree, considering Google's past tricks.)
