So there you have it - ads are very likely going to be part of Gmail soon. After all, it seems almost silly to not monetize a core app with an absolutely massive install base - between 500 million and a billion. I just hope these ads won't be overly intrusive, and from the looks of things, the Gmail team is approaching the situation with care.

Ads on my Android Gmail application? Seriously, Google?

I'm surprised it took them so long

This is what you get when you leave your e-mails to an advertising company. Considering how much evil Google has become, I'm surprised this didn't come out before, and most of all I'm surprised that their POP/IMAP service is still alive.

So evil. Like, evil like TV channels. Or evil like sporting events. Or evil like the local mayor who allows billboards. So, so evil.

At least they don't have "don't be evil" as their own hypocritical motto.
