Bye-bye Gmail?

Google may have to rename its planned one-gigabyte-of-space e-mail service, but do we care? I mean, who wants an e-mail service that, according to the Reuters report, raises enormous security concerns by not permitting users to permanently delete e-mail messages sent to their account? []

My understanding of the whole deleting thing is that if you delete it, there’s a good chance there will be a residual copy someplace. But this is something that happens anyway: backups and mail servers and whathaveyou keep those messages too.

The targeted ad thing is a little creepy, but it’s not as if Google doesn’t already keep a track of you.
