OK Sorry, folks but I cant find a link anywhere, so you will have to take my word for it.

Last night on the main news on Radio 1 at 5:45pm there was a large segment on how Gmail was very intrusive. It painted a dim picture of Google reading emails for their targeted ads.

Radio 1 coverage is aimed at 16-24 year olds but reaches a lot wider than that.

If you ask me very negative publicity to get a special slot on the news.

Cheers

Yes, I heard that on my way back from work. The coverage was negative, but you can bet loads of people in the Radio 1 target market will still sign up for G-Mail.

I have no overiding opinion of Gmail, but there will be a large amount of muppets that listen to radio 1 that would give me their credit card details if I asked :)

What are you saying about the average Radio 1 listener? ;)

Surprisingly, in the people I know, the Radio 1 listeners are quite intelligent on average (obviously not those who phone in, of course!). The daftest are those who listen to advert-packed stations that have a record playlist of three songs...and we complain about repeats on TV...

...I think I'll go and find that bad Gmail review and have a listen.
