Gee, Ma! It’s Only Gmail!

Regarding the new Gmail service proposed by Google, which will give away one gigabyte of free email storage — and all you have to do is let them read all your mail and use what they find there however they want:

“It’s not a great deal. Individuals would be throwing away the protections of their communications for a few dollars,” Hoofnagle said. “We don’t see this as any different than letting a company listen in on your phone conversations and letting the Postal Service open your mail.”

Uh, okay. But I don’t let companies listen in on my phone conversations and I don’t let the Postal Service open my mail.
