I still have four GMail accounts available for anyone who would like one. Just request it through the comment form of this entry, and I’ll send you the invite.
If you haven’t heard about it yet, GMail is a cool web-based email program that Google has been beta testing for the past year or so. It gives you a full gigabyte of storage space for all those big file attachments, and it’s free. So far it’s available through invitation only. Here is what they say about that:
Thanks for using Gmail and helping us improve the service. We’re ready to expand our test to a few more users, and because you’ve been a trusted early tester of Gmail, we’re looking for your help. Please invite a few more people who you think would like Gmail and could help us make it even better.
Google has clearly leveraged their search expertise for this product. Rather than having you set up a bunch of folders and move messages from folder to folder, GMail lets you set up labels and then “tag” the messages. You can then filter the messages based on those labels or filter based on any text in the subject or contents of the messages. It’s quite a nice little email service.
I’ll send invites to the first four who submit a request—if I even get four requests. Come and get it!
