Gmail Paper

    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.

    That's really a good feature, i think it will be something related to printads?

    April Fool

    Welcome to Gmail's April Fool's Day joke

    As you may have guessed, Gmail Paper is not a real product or feature of Gmail. No, we don't plan on sending you boxes and boxes of your email in hard copy form.

    Quote from the site

    "But what about the environment?
    Not a problem. Gmail Paper is made out of 96% post-consumer organic soybean sputum, and thus, actually helps the environment. For every Gmail Paper we produce, the environment gets incrementally healthier."

    LMAO

    I still thought about it: "hum... this is really expensive... printing photos for free, ad supported?"
    But it's April's fools, and one quick search revealed the truth :p

    I love it, although when I read the part about printing photos I really wished this wasn't a joke...if only.

    I like the TiSP joke too, wonder how many people actually clicked on the Learn More link
