An anonymous reader writes "Google in another first has released Google Paper a paper archive service for gmail users... Details state that it will be free and funded by advertising revenue. From press release:
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.
How about attachments?
All part of the deal. Photo attachments are printed on high-quality, glossy photo paper, and secured to your Gmail Paper with a paper clip. MP3 and WAV files will not be printed. We recommend maintaining copies of your non-paper Gmail in these cases.
Is there a limit?
You can make us print one, one thousand, or one hundred thousand of your emails. It's whatever seems reasonable to you."
