Gmail invitations!

I just got home to Toronto and as I'm checking my email tonight, for the first time, the “Invite a Friend to GMail” link comes up.  Now it looks like there's a limit of only 3 invitations I can do, and I've already promised one to my loving husband.  For the other 2 invites that I can do, I've already had way more than 2 people ask me for invites, but most of them are rather unoriginal:  “Please invite me to GMail”, etc.  I've got 2 invites up for grabs, so the 2 most creative requests I get can have the invites, whether I know you “in real life” or not.  Email me at:  Marcie (_at_) DatagridGirl.com.  Ability to follow directions is a factor too, so responses to this post will be automatically disqualified, as will using the contact form from this blog.

--Marcie

Update:  I've gotten 33 entries so far, and most of them are quite creative! So please don't send me any more, it's already hard enough to decide.  :)  I'd love to give all 33 of you an invitation, and I will definitely hold onto all the addresses in case I get more Invites in the coming weeks to give out.  Thanks for all the laughs!!!  I'm hoping to post some of the highlights here in the next few days.

Update!  I have awarded the remaining 2 GMail invitations to Sonu Kapoor and Jason Mauss.  Congrats and thanks for the laughs and all the wonderful entries!  I'll save all of the emails and would love to award some more if/when I get some more invitational powers.

Am I alone in wondering what the big deal is with GMail - 1GB of space...umm...got 160Gb on my mail server right here...the search function...hmm...I just don't do that very often (and Lookout is perfectly up to the job if I need to). I just don't get why everyone is so excited...well apart from Google who get a great Data-Mining resource...

# re: Gmail invitations!

Well...not everyone has a 160GB mail server at their disposal. Also, the ability to access their email from anywhere with an Internet connection is huge. Of course I'm talking about that without Terminal Services or OWA since most users don't have those tools at their disposal. I'm not totally hyped about Gmail, but definitely interested in seeing it in action and the affect it has out there.

I don't understand why I still haven't got invitational powers :-( Any idea how you got it, Marcie?

No idea, maybe divine intervention.

Hi, my web page is under construction, but you can see the layout, anyway, just wanted to say that contest are a great way of giveing away Gmail invitations, I have seen a lot of them being sold for 2 dollars, it is not much, but I think that was not the idea of Gmail.

Please share, not only your Gmail invitations, share knowledge.

# re: Gmail invitations!

Ok, I admit it...I'm clueless about this whole thing....Is Gmail going to stay by invite only? What's the point of offering this new service if only a select few are able to use it?

And am I the only one really disgusted by those who are selling their invites?

# re: Gmail invitations!

WEll, why I deserve it? Well, I don't but it be nice. I don't have much in life but there are many people in the world that do have less than me so I should complain. I a single parent with 3 children. I work 12 hour shifts just to make enough money for rent. My husband left me for many other women. So I came here to the U.S. to try to make it on my own with my children. I can't afford school clothes for them right now but I work over time to makes that extra buck. I don't get child support because the courts been tracking my husband for 5 years now to make him pay. My older child Arielle want to go to driving school but I can't afford it. But she deserve to! My tounger one Kenneth is upset because I can afford to put him in football because the fees are really expensive. And the middle one, Edward is struggling in school but I can't really help him because i don't understand his home work. I would say at least I have my health but that seems to be decling as well. But that's ok. Because I have God on my side and that's all I really need to get me through these hardships which some day I will surley over come. : )

sincerely,

# re: Gmail invitations!

gmail invites trouble to those new account who has registered from give away url postings on websites.

their gmail a/c are exposed! and probably invited many unwant email asking for invites.

gmail should "hide away" the registered gmail a/c and just said that the link has been used to registered a gmail account.

my 2 cents,
