Default Re: Damn Google And Gmail

This is probably a coincidence, but i switched all my emails and registered my Gmail account for NET passport for use with MSN Messenger, everything i do now depends solely on Gmail ...
And they could very well be finding out a way to support such as large system, there are programs such as the Gmail drive which enables you to use it as a virtual drive, no doubt that their storage capacity may decrease but maybe they are handling it, its just that they need to experiment and conclude which techniques will be more efficient and then they will be able to remove it from its BETA stages ...

Trust me, I'm not using Gmail on a regular basis. Since the first day I signed up, I only had ONE message in the Inbox from a friend. That's how uncomfortable I was with Gmail. So we're on the same page here. Until they can enhance or better their service, I will not rely on Gmail as a primary email account.

Yes, I have to agree with the very first post. I also rely heavily on my email to conduct business. If I can't access my account, I lose.

I still like using their search engine, just not their email service. I love the Google Earth program so I'm not a total hater of Google......yet, lol.

If you select 3d buildings or something like that, you can actually follow the streets like you were driving. The buildings are 3d rendered giving you height perspective so that's pretty neat.

This is exactly why I'm posting this. I used to think this way, until something happened to me. In the story, I mentioned that I had had total faith in Gmail, which eventually turned me down. Again, life is funny when it's not happening to you. What looks fine on the outside does not mean it is what you think it is on the inside.

Its only still a Beta because they cannot afford to release it. While they can get the advertising information they need from Beta users, they don't need to release it for hundreds of millions of people who they couldn't support even on bandwidth, let alone usage.

In the end, you get Google. And Google is all about advertising. You as a customer are nothing more than a way to get more customers.
