THIS IS CRAZY
I read this on another site, but there are apparently people going on Ebay and selling Google Gmail accounts or invitations to sign-up for one.
Gmail is Google’s entry into the web-based e-mail world. It features 1 Gb of storage space, which is quite a lot.
Gmail is currently only in beta testing, so not everyone can just sign-up for an account. Because I’m on Blogger (which is owned by Google), I’ve had a Gmail account for several weeks now.
I can tell you right now, it’s not worth the $50+ US that people are bidding. Is Gmail bad? No, it’s actually quite neat and has a lot of features I haven’t seen before. I don’t think I’d switch over to Gmail as my primary account, but it’s nice to have.
If you want to see all the crazy bidding, click here. If you want an invitation to beta test Gmail, just tell me, I’ll send out as many as you want.
