Now that April Fools Day is over, GoogleGuy openly states that Gmail is a real product. He also takes the opportunity to show how quickly the SERPs began showing Gmail results (I noticed this too, not bad at all).

Well, April Fool's is over. Mostly I did pretty well. One Googler sent out a fake email saying that he was getting married. I thought that one was real--I mean, he even included a picture!--but overall I didn't get fooled too much.

So back in a non-Foolish world, Gmail is a real product with 1,000 megabytes of storage. I'm sure more details on it will trickle out over time. By the way, here's a quick way to test freshness: when there's a news event, see which search engines pick it up on the web and how fast. I like the freshness of Google for the query gmail compared to other search engines, and we (of course) didn't do anything special for this query.
