Is GMail real?

I don't know if GMail is real. (For anyone who isn't "in the know," GMail is Google's new email system, through which users get a gigabyte of storage space -- free.) GMail has gotten lots of press coverage see New York Times here or Chicago Tribune here. Of all the articles I've read, only this one from CNN Money suggests that GMail may be an April Fool's Day joke. That seems more plausible than a free gig of storage space (Yahoo charges for just 100 megs). Maybe, we expect more from Google, but as the CNN Money article reminds us, Google is known for pulling pranks.

Readers -- Keep your wits about you, there may be treachery afoot!
