Gmail is gonna be toast now. It opened its signup process to everyone today, and I think there’ll be a huge rush. Go grab you ID before it’s gone!
Anyway, without big ads, nobody does click on the text ads, they’re totally ignored, I think GMail ain’t gonna be making much money. After all, I think that Google will have to bankroll it from the billions it makes out of ads in its search results.
In more bad news, major Hollywood studios are thinking of suing it for promoting piracy. And from what it looks like, Google won’t have much defense.
