Gmail fail

You know how Gmail displays advertisements based on the content of your page? E.g. if you're reading a message about music, it may display ads for online CD shops, or sheet music, or that sort of thing.

Well, I was reading a message from the James Randi Foundation, and Gmail's software customized its advertisements accordingly:

It’s actually Google supplying the ads. Attached is what I got when I pulled up this page.

You can't really regard these as 'fail'. Google matches the ads to the subject matter of the mail you are reading, not which side of the subject you are on. If Google had advertisers for anti-psychic spray you would have been shown that one as well. Unfortunately, such things don't exist.

A good case for telepathy not existing: If it did, google would patent it, read my thoughts, and advertise exactly what I'm interested in.
