I was thinking about trying to get someone to send me an invitation for a Gmail account (apparently people with an account can send out 100 such invitations, and the counter is allegedly set back to 100 periodically, so that this can go on indefinitely). Anyone who's heard of Gmail probably knows why I wanted one: lots of free space on the web--in the form of an e-mail account, to be sure, but convertible into an online virtual drive. But then I read this, and it made me reconsider whether this is something I really want.


  • Shane, holler back in comments with where you want your invite to go if you still want one and one of us hasn't sent one yet.

    I think that google-watch is overstating their case in a weird paranoid-conspiracy kind of way.

  • Hi Adolph, yeah, those people sounded pretty paranoid to me too. Do you have any experience with gmail drive or any other way of using your account for anything besides just email? My address is shanedenson_at_web.de

  • I haven't tried out gmail drive although I've thought about it out of the whole geek factor. The invite should be in your inbox by now. I don't typically check my gmail address, so don't reply to there.

  • Hey adolph, thanks a lot. I just set up the account. And I think I'm going to have to try out gmail drive...geek factor, exactly...
    It is kind of silly, huh? I mean my hard drive here is nowhere near being full, and yet just knowing that 2.5 GB on the web could have my name on it is exciting in a really kid-like, Christmas-morning-presents-under-the-tree kind of way. Thanks again.
    Any one else tried out gmail drive or anything similar?
