Google has released another addition to their growing empire, Google Blog Search (yes it is a beta).
For those that have been living under a rock and haven’t heard about gmail.com yet then here is your chance to experience the latest in webmail.
Gmail is a new way of looking at the now standard webmail, which has been made widely available by large providers such as Hotmail and Yahoo. Gmail (google mail), has added a whole lot of extra features their services, including conversational view, Labels, 1000 Megabytes of storage, and not to mention the added functionality of Google’s popular and powerful search capabilities.
As Gmail is still in its beta stages, to become a member you need to be invited into Gmail by an existing member. I have come across 12 invites and as I already have an account they are of no use to me. If you are not already a member and are interested in the new features available by Gmail then simply leave a comment or email me with your email address and I will send you an invite. *

Update October 9th, 2005: Lots of Gmail invites; if for some reason you still don’t have a Gmail invite, contact me and I will send you one.
