    There are countless bloggers I've read recently who relate their Gmail experiments. Now, I'm just wondering : how the hell did these guys get a Gmail account, and who do I have to kill to get one myself ?

    The first wave of GMail testers were picked from Blogger users. Remember, Google gobbled up Blogger some time back.

    The second wave will be the referrers of the zeroeth wave, which consisted of handpicked invitees who need not have been blogger users. I am not too excited about having my email stored and analyzed by a search engine company, but then that's just me. :)

    I am quite excited about a gigabyte of space to store all my junk.

    I still see nothing special in gmail... sure 1gb is good to have, but cmon, whom will use all that space? and for what? spam? lol...
    much better to have own domain and have personal mail instead of something@gmail... just imho

    its not about space. for me its about speed.
    for an average user, the speed to check mails and send mails matter.
    if you compare yahoo/hotmail with gmail u will know what i am talking about.

    And you get only 2 invits. I have already consumed mine. Since I used one of the invit for my wife. I have been asking her if she got any invits. Seems like they have stopeed printing those invits. But any way gmail is great with those keyboard shortcuts and conversation concept. There are still few kinks but overall good.

    exactly. on my connection spyman is awefully slow.
    one of the major reason i liked gmail.
    plus gmail has views, threaded mailing and quick reply all the good features of M2 mail client. totally cool! :)
