      GMAIL

      What do you guys think? Privacy invasion or what. I'll say this it would be a Marketer's dream to know everyone inside out so that they can send them all types of online pop-ups to suite his/her desire. Giving away a free GIG storage it's gotta be a catch.

      The Gmail service ain't too bad.

      I dunno about your claim, but it's definitely a possibility. I only got a Beta release account, so I can only provide info about that. Yes, the GIG inbox feature is real. Honestly, the site admits to providing ads on the side of your email interface, just like that of the google search engine. However, there no pop-ups whatsoever. It's highly ridiculous for a company with a pop-up blocker to give you pop ups in the email client.

      Google's a favourite search engine nowadays, why be skeptical, yo?

      LOL...no, you have every right to be skeptical. It's just IMO that Gmail works well.

      For sum reason, I feel like your Tidus avatar is yelling at me as I read your messages. >_<

      But I feel ya, cuz dood, 1 Gig is indeed suspicious, especially when comparing it to hotmail's measly 2 MB inbox. But people can invade our internet privacy all the time, anyways. We're never completely safe, unless operatiing in a private network.

      To step outta my shoes for a while...Google is definitely cooking something special, whether it be good or not.

      Yeah you're right. Google is extremely competitive I can see them doing some pretty huge things in the near future. I like them, Its just that you read so many crazy things about all types of Hoopa going on with the new Gmail service. Frankly I don't care. I would never have anything personal going across a free mail service. Good Focuse on this topic [email protected].

      Damn thats crazy I actually clicked on the link and Guess what you get check it out!!!


      Tidus isn't out to hurt ya. He just look crazy.. HAHAHAAHA!!

      Google was created and is run by a couple of guys that just want to make the internet not so gay...they're basically big nerds that arent too much out for the money...the fact that Google might have to go public is not something they like/want...the whole Gmail is gonna rock, cause its by Google, and they basically just want to provide a non-crappy, non-spammy service

      Dood, I know peeps who work at Google....yeah, they're nerds, lol. But still good people, who are well-educated.

      Hehe...personal information is that only if we deem it to be so...
      ...No, I'm not a hacker!!

      But, truthfully...nobody would care about the stuff I send over the internet. It means something to me, and me only.

      use firefox with adblock
      All the ads and banners will be from a specific URL. right click on the banner, and you'll probalby see something like, ads.gmail.com/dir/ad.gif or something. If you tell adblock to block ads.gmail.com/dir/, the browser just wont load anything from that url anymore, you'll be ad free

      Damn, I just checked it out and it seems great...I don't care about how many ads they have, 1 gigabyte is just too good

      I signed up to their newsletter so hopefully I can get an email account soon...
      If I hadn't made me
      I'd be more inclined to bow
      Powers that be would have swallowed me up
      But that's more than I can allow...
