GMail has finally gone into an official public beta after 3 years of being an invite only application. You can now sign up easily but you’ll have to give up your mobile number and then Google will text you the invite code.
An awesome Google interface, 2GB of free space and millions of current users seems lucrative at first but few of them realize that Google actually reads the content of their emails to effectively serve up advertising. Send an email to friend about breaking up your boyfriend and possibly a Match.com ad may show up. A triumph for advertisers, I’ll side with the privacy freaks on this one and stick with good ol’ Yahoo.
