Gmail paper, Google will print you email (MP3 and WAV will not be printed)

Now I thought we were trying to move away from paper and move closer to an all electronic communication model. Apparently Google’s potential advertising revenue are to follow this...

Gmail Paper

Google are now offering to print your emails and send them to you.. for free. They can do this by including google ads in the print outs.

Interestingly they’ll even print your attachments including photos etc, but I had to laugh at the disclaimer – “MP3 and WAV files will not be printed.” Did anyone actually think they would try to print AUDIO FILES. It leave me asking.. what about .MPEG and .WMV files ??

Update
Of course this story is one of Google’s many April Fools Day jokes.

More @ Google.
