Things people do

What's the big deal about GMail? Even Rediff Mail now has the coveted 1 GB tag. I think the craze for a GMail account is only beacuse you can lay hands on it from an invite (if you were not lucky enought to have used Blogger.com services i.e). Today I got this funny mail from one “Shweta Devgan” (shweta.niit@indiatimes.com):

hi sheesh I am sure it is you! You were confident that you'd get the invite fast and you will get d***h@gmail.com even before the gmail release, but before that you had to get me invite first? You forgot? Now dont say you aren't! Do send me an invitation to join gmail because I am sure we are going to fill Gig when we talk. You know my way of saying thanks. Will wait for the invite. Shweta

Which provokes me to ask something Jay asked Kay in MIB, “When was the last time you had a CAT scan done, Shweta (or whatever is yr real name)?”

  1. You are right Hemanth! By this time it has become evident that the process of invites was a deliberate attempt on part of Google to ensure a gradual increase in load while ensuring that the craze escalates alongside from word-of-mouth. But the craze must have surpassed all estimations.

  2. I think one of the reasons for the craze may be the selective invitation procedure may actually increase the chances of you getting @gmail behind your first name, may be.
