I personally hate the ads that are shown in GMail because they are TOO targeted and it's creepy that GMail is scanning context of the content of my inbox. It feels like an invasion of privacy. It's one thing to see targeted ads in browsing but my inbox is MY inbox.

The argument here seems to be: "If g-mails bots weren't reading your mail it would be totally secure!"... except... that SMTP transmit's everything in 7-bit ASCII and the entire world can read it in transit. I was a mail admin for years - we can see what you're sending - particularly when the daemon crashes and it's in the dump.
So, do you want a non-human bot (not a real person, like in the video) reading your mail and trying to give you relevant advertisements while you use the service for free, or do you want to pay $99 a year like MS suggests in the Office 365 blurb at the end?
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
