I get enough spam and don't use groupon, nor am I inclined to respond well to special offers on anything I don't currently need, so I sincerely hope I don't see unsolicited offers appearing in my gmail account. I guess gmail IS a free service but still...
With kids nearly old enough to surf on their own I am becoming more sensitive to the force feeding of "buy buy buy" offers they will be subjected to. I can't be the only one who sees announcements like this and cringes ?!
edit: I also see it as a mistake to continually label things "Google" anything given the growing concern about the behemoth company, privacy etc. Like Starbucks should Google be simply giving new products a unique name instead of pushing the Google brand on everything ?
