Most people I know have a Gmail account. I’ve become ridiculously dependent on said account since Gmail tends to be my only link to the outside world while I sit at my desk, waiting for work.
One “helpful” feature of Gmail is that it, much in the vein of Amazon.com or TiVo, tries to figure out what it is that I’m interested in and then provide me with links to those sites. This is one of the most interesting facets of the e-mail server that I’ve encountered. Here are some of the things, based on (apparently) the content of my e-mails, that Gmail thinks I am interested in*:

*Note, part of me feels like I should attribute each link to a specific e-mail (for example, the bra strap link was from an e-mail about how I’m having a slow work day) but then I realized that it may just be more fun if I don’t.**
**Okay, another note: I do feel like I should explain that some of these links (NPR and the Bra Straps) are things that I’ve simply never mentioned in e-mails. Gmail boggles my mind sometimes.***
***I swear this will be my last note, but it was sort of an afterthought so bear with me. I have not clicked on any of these links so if they happen to be to pornography sites or anything else of a salacious nature or if they happen to lack any and all sense of morality, dignity, and work decorum (translation anything that’s generally considered NSFW), I apologize.
