Default Re: More Free Gmail Accounts

I am curious as to how it works. When you get an invite, can you pick the username or is it assosicated with the username it comes from.

OK.

Yeah, I saw them for sale everywhere too! I think that was the idea anyway, google wanted to creat a 'buzz' and get the name out there and I guess it worked rather well!

i agree. maybe they should just release it to the public, and get it over with. oh yeah, i forgot. they don't really need to release it to the public, everyone who wants it has it, or else they know someone who has it.

They release it to the public - their servers won't cope with the demand for space, and they, even with the scum advertising revenue from the information collected, won't be able to get enough after even a few weeks.

Knowing the fact that google screens your emails and can read everything. I dont like the fact of google desktop search and Google instant messaging. It just makes me jittery.
