    In one of Kim Komando's newsletters, she said you don't need an "invite" to Google email anymore. She gave a link, but I didn't copy it. Somehow, like trainworm, I just don't need another email address and I wouldn't know what to do with all that storage anyway. I never used more than 10% when Yahoo gave you 10 meg. Now they give you 1 gig, I never get up to 1%. I guess I gotta start downloading movies or music, just that I can't find anything suitable for the over 65 crowd to download..:D:D

    If you are concerened at all about internet privacy, you may want to avoid Gmail. Read this article for more info.

    Basically, Google can keep your e-mail, even after you delete it or close your account. No big deal? How about in a few years when Google's servers get hacked and they now can access every bit of info in your e-mail. Online purchases, passwords, and everything else.

    The downside of web surfing is so many people just click right past the Terms and Conditions without reading it.

    Just FYI...

    edit -- here's more info with alternatives suggested in section 4.1

    Don't know what the "invite spooler" is. All I know is that Kim mentioned in one of her newsletters that you don't need an invite anymore and gave a link to go directily to the Gmail signup. Again, I didn't pay attention since I don't need yet another email address and really don't care about 2 gig of storage either.

    Incidentally, I consider my Yahoo address as disposable and use it on forums, for newletters, on newsgroups and other public places, so I don't collect much email there.

    thats pretty interesting!


    i also read that AOL instant messenger's policy states that the users surrender all copyrights and information that is sent over AIM... if you send copyrighted photos or even a book or transcript, they are legally allowed to reproduce your work and everything....



    when i do anything that involves money or personal stuff, i use my other address, my google mail is mainly my e-mail for friends, forums, and newsletters.... i have a .edu that i use for important stuff and the address that came with my ISP
