Sign up for Gmail

While I was away the Google Blog reported that you can finally sign up for Gmail without an invitation. Perhaps people will now finally stop asking me for invitations?

The real news however, is that you have to give them your mobile phone to sign up, and Russell Beattie has a similar take on things to me. It's a good move on their part to harvest all those numbers, but probably not a smart move on our part to hand them over without a serious think about the future consequences...
