hriders vs. Gmail ... the battle for the biggest space continues

100 GB ... really? Their site says is giving away 10 GB but an article in Tom's Hardware Guide says they are boosting that to 100 GB. I'm still trying to check it out. Hriders offers 100 GB email ... for free?

Does Google have enough servers for Gmail?

It sounds like maybe Gmail needs a few more servers and this explains the sporadic invites and offers. I pretty much think though they've reached a saturation point and everybody who wants one already has one. They should just open up the system full throttle to the masses.

Gmail invite supply greater than demand

I just posted somewhere that I think the time is finally here: Gmail invite supply is greater than demand. We had almost 30 Gmail invites to give away on last week's radio show and only 1 went. Yes, this is just one isolated example, but I'm seeing a saturation of invites all over the place. I think it's time for Gmail to just open it up to everybody and quit with the whole invite thing

Brilliant marketing on their part, but I think now the supply is greater than demand. The only requests on my blog are pretty much mechanized from foreigners.
