Yes, I am part of the elite group of people who have gmail accounts. Jealous? No need. I have 2 gmail invites that I am giving away right now! This is a limited time offer. The first 2 people to comment (and leave their e-mail addie1) will be on the way to nerd elitism.
Before you take advantage of this offer, here are some pros and cons to consider:
*You can search your messages. I've found this useful only once, but that's mostly because I haven't had the account long enough to accumulate lots of messages.
*You get 1000 megabytes of storage. This is the big seller for google. It's more than anyone really needs.
*Your messages are grouped with all their replies as a conversation. This is pretty neat. It's actually my favourite part. Also replying to messages is almost like a chat msn style (only it's e-mail).
*You can "star" messages that you want to be able to find easily. Another reason I never really used the search feature.
*It's by invite only so you get to feel special.
Cons (sorry google I love you for hosting this blog):
*While you can receive messages with cool html colors and pics in them, you cannot create them. This sucks. I rarely make my messages pretty anyway, but sometimes I feel the need.
* You can't really add someone to your address book unless you e-mail them or transfer their address from your old address book. This is kind of annoying but really, why would you want someone in your address book that you didn't want to e-mail?
*I think there was something else but it can't be that important because I forgot.
So there you have it comment now and be part of the wonderful world of nerdy net elitism!
1. Yes, I realise you may have reservations about posting your e-mail on the blog. TOO BAD SO SAD. Your new addie will be gmail anyway so why do you care really?
