Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past six months Gmail is Google’s e-mail service. It offers one gigabyte of storage space and a simple interface. Currently, you can only get a gmail account by invitation. If you don’t have an invitation you can get one at the gmail invite spooler.
I think it’s time for a little experiment. The first person that e-mails my new gmail account I will send them a $15 iTunes gift card. The trick is I’m not going to give my gmail address. This isn’t as hard as it looks. First a couple of rules: 1. I will only accept e-mail from a gmail account. I got one so should you. 2. Have something in the e-mail about this post. Something clever like “I found you now pony up!” 3. You better have an iTunes account because I’m not shipping anything. Well, I think that’s about it. Let’s see how long it takes to give away this gift card.
Update: Well that was fast. My boy Stephen scored the iTunes gift card in six minutes. I think that’s a record for this blog. Congrats. BTW he wants everyone to know that he loves me.
