Okay, I’ve got 3 Gmail invites to give out, and I’m going to give them to the people who post the best quotes. So just comment with your quote if you need a Gmail invite.
Gmail Dreaming – Hotmail tries
Last night I had this weird dream that for some reason google went crazy and gave me a ridiculesly large number of gmail invites. I want to say it was like 120. It was really strange. Speaking of Gmail, it seems that Hotmail has finally responded. They are upgrading all of their free accounts to 250mb, and their premium paid service to 2gb. However, they still freeze and delete the files from your free account if you don’t log in every 30 days, and they’re not upgrading everyone at once. They’re doing it gradually starting in July, with the paid accounts first. I’ve been wondering what hotmail would do to respond. It’s not just the space that makes Gmail so well liked, for one thing it’s because it’s Google, and Google is the web. The interface of Gmail is just so well done. The whole service is phenomenal. Google seems to do everything right. search, ads, email. I wouldn’t be surprised if they came out with, like, an IM feature some time and did it really well.
I’ve Got Gmail!
woohoo! after reading an article on Geek News Central I checked out the gmail swap website, particularly the Checking for invites page. This section jumped out at me;
Update: 20/05/04. If you’re a Blogger user, you may have the chance to join Gmail, or to distribute invitations. While this feature initially went away after the Blogger redesign, tonight, it’s back! If you are an “active” blogger user, login and then look on the right side above the Blogger Help box. If there’s a little square with the title “Want Gmail?”, you’re in luck! Register for a Gmail account, or else hold off and use the opportunity to swap with one of our supplicants.
I have a blogger account I use to test my blog templates with blogger coding, so I logged in and sure enough! I’ve only just logged in, and it looks super-cool. So, if you’re a blogger user, check for an invitation, and if you don’t want to use it, there are tons of geeky people ravenous for one! If you want to give your invite to someone, don’t click the link, right-click and select “save target as” to copy it to your clipboard. Paste it and send to your lucky friend. 🙂
I have Gmail. I am so happy… 🙂
