Oooo RSS inside GMail Ahhh

April 15, 2005

Evan (of Blogger fame) reports that his GMail account has a new feature. Looks kinda neat, unfortunately, you can’t customize the feeds shown in this “Web Clips” section. Also, it’s a little sneaky that they interleave ads in there; they get your attention with info you want to know and then show you some ads. Pretty clever if you ask me.

I wonder how many people will be able to tell the difference between news headlines and ads considering that most people can’t tell the difference between ads and search results.
