I was going to spend some time and write a lengthy entry about the new Google (GMail) Email service. Because of the required time that I really need to spend studying for AP tests this upcoming week, I decided that my time would probably be better spent doing that than taking too much time typing the entry that I wanted to (wow, I didn’t realize was typing so many words beginning with T).
Anyway, back to the GMail service. Google decided to officially announce the project on April 1, which led many people to believe that the entire concept was nothing but a big joke. Google is known to come out with fairly elaborate April Fool’s Day jokes from year to year, but GMail was not this year’s – this one was 2004’s joke.
Instead of discussing all of the nice features of GMail, I’ll just point a couple of websites: this one is a news release that discusses the new GMail service, and this one has some screenshots of the service.
Because Blogger, the free service that I use to maintain this blog, was taken over by Google in the last year, it was decided by Google to invite some of the Blogger users onto the beta test of GMail. All of the people who were previously a part of GMail had to have been invited by a family member or person who is employed at the Google headquarters.
Google is now ready to accept even more people for inclusion onto the GMail service, in order to make sure that everything is all right for the final release of GMail. All the people who have already signed up for the service, including those who were invited through Blogger, have been given the chance to invite one person to be a beta tester for the service. So, after reading through the features on that website that I posted, come back here and tell me on the Zonkboard if you want an invitation. The first person who tells me that they want one will get one sent to them.
