Since I heard about the initial idea that Google was going to start proviting email with outragious statistics (1gb email space) for free I wanted a part of it...

I did some research and it turns out that, to be on the ground floor, one must be invited by a presant member of the GMail community (much like ORKut)... The differance between Gmail and ORKut is that people are less abpt to invite you to GMail as there is a limit on the invites they can send per month...

Well; I got myself a Gmail account last month by selling my soul (not really, although there are many offers for that on GMail Swap; I just agreed to take some photos of a lady and her son at the Oregon Japanese Gardens).

Well; I got on today to the sight of "Invite your friends to GMail!"...

My first three invites go to:
Drak; Have to kiss ass to my boss/host...
IceMyst; If I didn't she'd hold out on me more than what she already does...
Weeve; it was going to go to Ghost, but due to the obvious issues earlier this month it got grandfathered to the #4 person ...

I may have some more invites by the end of the month; so if you'd like to make any offers on what i get for inviting you; go for it... Or anyone interested in GMail/ORKut feel free to post (I'll give out ORKut invites for free BTW).

For note; ORKut is the Google Partner site that's an invite only community which has a few million discussion topids; think of it as a huge bulletin board...

So, on with the shizat...

I said it before, and I'll say it again....

Oooh oooh oooh oooh. Can I please get an email account where all my shit is stored on some server where I can't delete it and have it analyzed out my wazoo so that I can have ads rammed down my throat?!?!?! Please let my personal shit be given to a soon to be public corporation so that they may exploit the shit out of it!!!!

God damn people, it's only a gig. Get a grip on reality here. I'm willing to bet most of us have at least that much space we could use for email if we wanted too. Don't be such media puppets and think for yourselves

I have several email addresses. Not too worried about it. Yahoo is about to launch 100 meg worth of storage to compete. I am sure Hotmail will follow suit. Kinda screws the whole charging for more space idea they had.

you've never used gmail have you?

google will never exploit any personal email. EVER. You really think a company that is about to go IPO would face 10's of thousand of class action law suits? Trust me, they don't give a rats ass what you are doing.

you can delete your emails, it's frowned upon because archiving > deleting..but you can delete them.

third: not a single person will EVER read your emails on gmail. It's computerized to search for keywords. Again they can't and won't exploit that shit. They've said this many time.

about the ads, I didn't even notice the adds in my emails till someone mentioned that they are doing it. THey are small, very subtle and not annoying.

while we might not be thinking "ourselves" it's a lot better then talking out the ass like you are doing without any knowledge of what gmail REALLY IS. They have plenty of agreements which states they will do exactly the opposite of what you just said...of course, you wouldn't know this because you are quick to jump to a hasty conclusion. All it does is make you look very ignorant. Lets take a closer look at this. We are the media puppets by trying a email service offered by google that is invite only. You are spouting out false claims from what you've HEARD IN THE MEDIA.

do you have no sense of logic? You sound... nevermind I don't want to get banned

gmail is a very nice email service. the layout is designed about as good as the TiVo interface (which is excellent). The VB keyboard shortcuts are impressive as hell & the overall service is faster than anything yahoo will ever be able to come up with.

It's like GMail, only they give you a terabyte of storage.

Do I win?

I've had it for a few days, I can delete items just fine; however they prefer that you archive it so that you can find it later.

The only search I see is to search your own mailbox; I've yet to get into another mailbox.

I don't have ANY ad's at all on my pages. If they decide to have ad's it'll be the google text ad's, see the bottom of our forum...

Not only that, users of the "yahoo plus" get 2gb space for $20/year; it's fairly amusing.
