Back to the email craze
People my age will remember the time when they used to create email logins all over the world. Maybe the youngsters still do. But I remember — @beer.com, @ghostmail.com, @hushmail.com, @…. the list was endless. I had at least 20 email accounts that I wasnted to use. Very soon, I came down to two. And for a long time it was just Yahoo! Mail alone. Then GMail changed things again. One big attraction was that it was from Google. (It is funny how I suck up to everything Google 🙂 heck, I even swooned over a flask with Google embossed over it!!) and then they came with the concept of conversations which was very addictive. (I think Opera came out with that before GMail in their inbuild email client, but then… you oughta advertise in a big way, eh?) And then they made it so damn difficult to get one. After waiting for so long for invites, I was damned if I was not going to use it :-D. So then I had two email accounts. Am pretty happy with just two of these now.
But it seems like we have interesting stuff coming up in the horizon. Two of them — Goowy and Laszlomail, have already hooked me to create new email accounts 😦 And if they become popular, well, I’ll be damned. If any more of these groovy email services come up, I’ll go back to my old craze of multiple email addresses 😦
