[us_politics] You See, We Told You, MSFT Is Evil

I mean, just look at who billg has on retainer. And recently it broke that MSFT has pulled a legislative fast one, on the down-low of course.

Links above from, respectively, AMERICAblog and TheStranger.com.

Props to Atrios, who remarked:

Maybe I’ll switch to Mac after all…

Maybe you should, A. Macintosh: It just works, and none of your money will go to Ralph Reed.

At least as far as we can know.

[net_life] Gmail Marches On

Posted in Uncategorized on April 26, 2005 by Samuel John Klein Portlandiensis

Gmail has been dishonest in their recent advertising, I fear.

Recently it was announced that regular Gmailers were having thier online space doubled. It started as 1000MB (which was inaccurately promoted as 1GB-that’s 1024MB, people, ask any real geek). In what was a very fun way of rolling it out, Google increased member’s storage day by day, with a live update on the Gmail login page. Before long I was at 2000MB.

Then I was at 2048MB, an actual 2 Gig.

But it hasn’t stopped. I’m now at 2,133MB. And it still seems to be going up.

Another thing I don’t seem to be running out of are Gmail invites. I tried giving them away to friends, but after I give away a few, Google tops me back up.

I have 50 invites to give out. Anyone who wants one, just follow this posting. If things change, I’ll repost on this subject.

PS:There are concerns about privacy and Gmail. Google has responded to them with this prospectus. I have so far used Gmail with no problems.
PPS: Yes, I was one of those who knew that the 21st Century began in 2001 and not 2000, but I held my opinion on that. I didn’t want to harsh anyone’s vibe.
