A defense of G-Mail. I for one am very excited about this. A whole gig for each account you make. Think of all the space for data that you would normally have to throw out. There's no way that could be free, so I don't care if they forward my mail to their friends and claim it as their own. But the kicker is that the privacy argument against G-Mail is moot; any email provider that has anti-spam services scans through your messages anyway. They just don't tack on corresponding ads, which from most testers of G-mail are said to be very unobtrusive.

If like me you're been befuddled by Bob Dylan's appearance in those Victoria Secret commercials, check out Seth Stevenson's assessment. He does a good job offering possible motives and explanations, but it's still a mystery to me.
