It’s been almost three years since Google launched Gmail onto an unsuspecting public and during a good portion of that time the only way to sign up was to get an invite from someone who was already using it. Then awhile back they opened it up to anyone who could receive a text message on their cellphone, which still left a lot of people overseas out of the fun unless they could get someone to send them an invite. Now all restrictions have been removed and anyone with a web browser can sign up for themselves.
So all you folks who are still sending me emails begging for a Gmail invite can stop now and go sign up. Anyone who sends me an email begging for an invite now will instead receive a reply viciously taunting you for being such a moron.
This has been a SEB Public Service Announcement.
