Everyone is all worked up on the Internet and traditional press outlets about Google’s new email service, GMail.
Attention people of Earth: Will you never learn? Google, arguably one of the coolest companies around (who else mods their corporate logo for holidays?!) announces a gigabyte of free email storage on Thursday, April 1st and no one pauses to cry turkey?!
Well, I could be wrong, but I’m saying it’s an April Fool’s Joke. And, if it’s not, I’m signing up for the “elvis@gmail” username! Now if only someone would reveal this as a hoax, all would be right with the world.

Except that it was announced yesterday. You better sign up quick, Elvis.
I thought that it may of been an early Poisson d’Avril gag myself.. but there are so many huge media outlets that are covering it now. I think it’s a great idea, as long as it’s IMAP compatible all will be right with the world. If it turns out to be a april fools gag, if far outshines it’s yearly Space job post 🙂
Better try again, Merrin. It hit the wires early, but the press release is dated 4/1/2004.
Thanks for telling me about GMAIL! Boy, I gotta go get my account! Hahahahahah! I hate April’s Fools.
Ps…I am well aware that on some very points, we share the same views, but I am politically inept/ignorant to fight the good fight, so Kevin, SPANK THAT BABY for me, too! (No April’s Fool.)
Next you’re going to tell me that PigeonRank isn’t real either!
OK. So I was wrong. It’s not a prank. Now if I could just sign up “firstname.lastname@example.org”!
