Hi guys, Just because I have some, would any one like a Gmail account? I have 6 invitations which I am giving away. Any one at all will be given one so if you want another email address or just want a Gmail account please post here and email me. Thoughts on the system would be good too.

As most of you might know, Gmail 'scans' email for marketing perposes. But to stop conspiracy theorists Gmail does NOT scan the acctual email, it only scans the subjet title.

The adverts that are shown in Gmail are only text based and are very small. These are so google can get revinue from the companys. You get ad's when you search in google along the side, its the same in gmail!

PS. I have 6 Invites going for free if any one would like one email me with the yellow folder above.

Descussions about Gmail will be very good.

I received my invite from Powerless last week and have opened an account. Seems excellent and has you say the advertising is almost invisible and nothing to be concerned about.

I recommend that people take out your invites as soon every one will probably have an account and the later you leave it then the smaller the selection of usernames will be. j.
