Gmail – progress to date

Gmail is a fabulous idea. But I cannot wait until it gets out of beta. Current performance issues have been a little frustrating, as has the problem in receiving emails from hotmail. It feels like it is not on a production level server as there are lots of time-outs.

The recent improvements to gmail – e.g. the import contacts – are also good. If they keep on at this rate this will blitz competitors.

It is amusing that space has increased on yahoo & hotmail in recent days too!

Being an early adopter is good too – you get the name you want.
