Gmail just can't get enough users. Merely two weeks after Google allowed current users to invite 50 friends to start using the service, the company began giving away Gmail accounts to users who had asked to receive updates about the service.
"We also wanted to thank you. For showing us your support and for being so patient," the email stated. Thanks for nothing, most users will think. All the good user names by now have been snagged up. So unless you're looking to be [email protected], you're out of luck.
Gmail remains in beta, and the company stresses that the latest move doesn't signal a change in that situation.
That may be so, the company seems to be collecting users as a squirrel does with nuts before winter.
