Gmail finally really open to everyone
Nearly three years after Gmail was first released, the free Web-based e-mail from Google is being opened up for anyone in the world. Beginning Wednesday, everyone and their mother can sign up instead of having to get an invite from a Gmail-using friend. Google has been phasing out the invitation restriction geographically, with total general availability offered in Europe last week and in North America, South America and Asia this week. The service is still in beta test mode, however.
I've been using Gmail as my primary email account for quite a while, and it appears to work well, at least through a real email application like Outlook. I have my concerns about Google, however, and then there's Yahoo Mail, which is an absolutely gorgeous Web-based email solution, far nicer than Gmail.
