Is Gmail Going Public Soon?
Many months ago when I pined for a Gmail account of my very own, I signed up on the Gmail site to receive information and news about Gmail. My secret hope was that this would get me an invite to join. It didn’t. (Of course, I received an invite from someone a long time ago and now have so many invites I shall never find people that want them.)
Imagine my surprise to find an email from Gmail in my Yahoo inbox this morning.
Thanks for signing up to be updated on the latest Gmail happenings. We
hope it’s been worth the wait, because we’re excited to finally offer
you an invitation to open a free Gmail account!
Does this mean Gmail may go public soon – i.e. allow anyone to register for an account without an invite? Perhaps they’re just targeting Yahoo account holders.
