On ResourceShelfPLUS: A New Compilation of Recently Awarded Search-Related Patents & Patent Apps
The March compilation of selected search-related patents and patent apps is now available on ResourceShelfPLUS. New patents to Microsoft, Yahoo, IBM, and many others. You'll also notice two patent applications from Google.

Did I Just Mention Google? Hello GMail (via News.com)
Google has announced that they'll start testing a free email service called GMail. It will offer 1GB of storage space per user.

The service (going live today) will only be available for 1000 "invited" users. No date was mentioned as to when Google will make the service available to the general public. More from Markoff (NY Times) and Sullivan (SEW).

From the NY Times article, "At Google, one official said, the company has engaged in an intense debate over how extensively to exploit the content of e-mail." One of the patent applications listed in the roundup deals with serving ads in email. Here's the GMail privacy policy.
