Alright, so either you’re going to love this new “feature” or you’re going to never want to send emails again. Apparently, Google has upgraded their indexing of user attachments inside Gmail that goes beyond the searching of text inside TXT or HTML files, adding Word Docs, Powerpoint, PDF, and other formats to the mix as well. That means if you someone sends you a Word Doc, you no longer have to remember the subject or text of the email — instead you can just search for keywords found inside the Word Doc itself. Awesome? You bet. A little scary? Well, there’s that too. How do you guys feel about Google’s new indexing of your email attachments?
