Lawmaker moves to block Google's Gmail

SAN FRANCISCO, California (Reuters) -- A California state senator on Monday said she was drafting legislation to block Google Inc.'s free e-mail service "Gmail" because it would place advertising in personal messages after searching them for key words. "We think it's an absolute invasion of privacy. It's like having a massive billboard in the middle of your home," Sen. Liz Figueroa, a Democrat from Fremont, California, said in a telephone interview.... Source: CNN I am guessing this lady has never used Yahoo! or MSN web-mail before. The thought of this proposed legislation is dumbfounded. It already happens all over the place. I think this is pathetic and cannot wait for Gmail to launch.
