If you’re bored of the plain old white Gmail background, then one option is to use the Better Gmail Firefox extension which added a few themes. Gmail now comes with several different skins that you can use to beautify your inbox. In a quote from their blog post: We wanted to go beyond simple color customization, so out of the 30 odd themes we’re launching today, there’s a shiny theme with chrome styling, another one that turns your inbox into a retro notepad, nature themes that change scenery over time, weather driven themes that can rain on your mailbox, and fun characters to keep you in good company.
Received an interesting email today. Interesting because without doubt it has all the signs of a big scam. Firstly, I received it at my Yahoo!
This week has been a rather active week for the folks at Google. You can now publish to your Blogger blog directly from iGoogle. Additionally, you can now choose to embed comments below your post inself instead of having them on a new page.

I remember nearly ten years ago me venturing into a tiny cyber cafe in an attempt to understand what the Internet was all about, what email is and what did people mean when they said chat online. Those days, to use the internet cost a bomb with horrible dialup speeds. Well, the internet today still costs a bomb but the speeds have gotten significantly better!
It’s crossed the limit finally. You have now more than 7GB storage space with Gmail. Storage space crossed the storage limit a few days before.
It was about time that this happened! The dull and dry interface in Gmail just got an enhancement with Group Chat and Emoticons.
FeedBlitz, a popular Blog to Email service has changed its Terms of Service which come into effect on August 19, 2007. The two main changes to the terms of service are: Lists with an active circulation of 5,000 or more must be on a FeedBlitz premium service (Pro, Turbo or Newsletter Edition). Ads will be inserted into subscriber emails for lists with circulations of this size until such time as they comply This is indeed a surprising change, though their reasoning for the same makes sense.
For as long as Gmail has existed, it has been an invite only, which meant that you couldn’t get an account unless you managed to find some kind soul to invite you for one. During the early days invites were rare and you could even find them for sale on eBay. I remember getting my invite from some forum with the condition I had to give back, which I did.
