Google's Gmail Creating a Buzz

LawLibTech has a nice summary of the buzz surrounding Gmail, a free web based email service from Google. Gmail accounts (if you can get one) offer an extremely large amount of space (1 gigabyte) and include a robust search engine for sifting through your messages.
The catch, one that has privacy groups worried, is that Google scans the text of your messages and delivers ads based on the keywords it finds.
