    gmail going public?

    I just noticed that I now have 50 invites to give out....I'm not sure what, if anything, that signifies for gmail. Did you guys get the 50 invites as well? your thoughts?

    Yes I did.
    Do they really expect people with gmail to have 50 friends and yes I think they will be going public soon
    Woop?

    I've only got 5 left, but I noticed they made it a lot easier to invite people now. There's just a box you type the person's name in and voila as opposed to the popup window they used to have.

    "I concur", as my chemistry teacher used to say. I have noticed the changes as well.

    I'm wondering if the excellent service will be affected by going public. Though if people want a Gmail account it's really not that hard to get one.

    I haven't checked Gmail since I got my invite and signed up. My Charter account is fine for me. *shrug*
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.
