About Gmail Paper:
This is a little early to be an April Fools joke, so I have to assume it’s legitimate. Not it’s not — I just checked the calendar and was shocked to realize it’s April 1.
You can ask Google to send you a paper archive of all the email in your Gmail account (not really). They will print out all your email, pack them up, and ship them to you (nope). For free (not a chance).
Is it free? Yes. The cost of postage is offset with the help of relevant, targeted, unobtrusive advertisements, which will appear on the back of your Gmail Paper prints in red, bold, 36 pt Helvetica. No pop-ups, no flashy animations — these are physically impossible in the paper medium.
How about attachments? All part of the deal. Photo attachments are printed on high-quality, glossy photo paper, and secured to your Gmail Paper with a paper clip. MP3 and WAV files will not be printed. We recommend maintaining copies of your non-paper Gmail in these cases.
I’m still not convinced this isn’t a joke (oh, it is…). This “testimonial” seems a little too funny (for a reason):
Now that I have Gmail Paper, I understand the difference between labels and folders. I had one message with two labels, but when I tried to stick the paper version into two filing cabinets at the same time, it just wouldn’t go.
