Props to Brandon for the Gmail invite. I guess I now get to consider myself one of the elite few, though I find the whole thing blown way out of proportion. I can see how 1 GB of e-mail space can be appealing, but the resulting onslaught of sites such as gmail swap and Gmail Machine seem a little over-the-top.
I have to say, though, that I’m already quite fond of Gmail’s simple, quick-loading interface. Once I get a few messages in there, maybe I’ll be able to make use of some of the other features. There’s just so much hype surrounding it that I can’t help but remain skeptical.
