Back on April 1st, I wrote about Gmail, the new email service from Google. At the time, I thought it might be an April Fool's Day joke because Gmail promised to offer its users 1 GB of space and all the excellent search capabilities we've come to expect from Google. I can now vouch first hand that it's definitely not a joke.
I now have a Gmail account. I opened it today thanks to an invite from a friend. The invite was necessary because Gmail is not yet available to the common man but beta testers are permitted to invite a new user once in a while. I've been playing around with my Gmail account this afternoon and thus far I'm very impressed. In fact, I'm so impressed I'm considering making it my primary email account. Hit me with your best shot.
