Better Gmail Ads = No Privacy ?

Gmail logoGmail soon to release better ads mechanism. They are trying to cut down irrelevant ads then provide ads related to you base on email content and importance ranking.

What does it means? It means Gmail knows what you are Reading! For example, if you always emailing about cameras or photography, Gmail ads will show you a deal from local camera store. It do just like what Adsense did.

Now come to the main concern, do we have privacy anymore? The answer is YES. Ads in Gmail are fully automated-no humans read your messages – stated in Gmail ads principle, I hope so.
