Looks like Gmail is full public access now, but without an invite, you have to register using your mobile phone! HAHAHA! Whats up wit dat!

Can you say, telemarketers? I can see it now, you will be talking on your cell phone, and you will mention something about say, a brick, and bam, you will have another call on call waiting, and it will be an advertisement for a bricklayer, just like google.com.

I wonder how many suckers are gonna register there phones icon_lol.gif

    well, googel's explanation of why they're doing it over the phone was so that they wouldn't have people writing a program to create thousands of accounts and take advantage of the free storage.

    yea, we'll see if it ends there.

    Google is not well known for their "lawful" practices, like luring the VP of M$.

    This may be a rumor, but I heard the google is currently working on their own "paypal". Haha, it seems they want to compete with everybody.

    If that's true, anyway. I personally hope it is - eBay/PayPal has gotten crooked and corrupt with its monopoly.

    Check out google earth. I'm certain the map making people like terra server etc are pissed about that one. I have to admit, it is pretty cool and I'm addicted.

    It certainly is impressive. Even CNN was using the thing in its Katrina coverage..
