Presumably, this takes advantage of features developed for Google Docs’ upcoming Google Presentations software, which is supposed to release sometime this summer, or even uses some of the tech acquired from Tonic Systems earlier this year.

Here’s the neat part about owning YouTube: you can get people to make your commercials for you a lot cheaper than it costs to pay an advertising agency to do it. The end result for Google is still a pretty cool commercial though, the collaborate effort of about 1,100 GMail fans.
You probably have heard that you can use Gmail to filter spam for all your email addresses. You might have gone so far as to look up how to do it and end up a little frustrated because your not a server whiz and rely on cpanel to set up filters. The reason your having problems is because Cpanel is a bit different than a vanilla Linux install.
We’ve come to think of Googlers as cool people, as smart people, and above all, as tech-savvy people. I’m not here to challenge that perception, but a new post on the Official Google Australia Blog implies that Google’s employees deal with some of the same crap as the rest of us. The topic of the post? IM etiquette.
There is going to be a new Gmail t-shirt, and in and of itself, this news probably wouldn’t be worth writing about. But what’s interesting is that Google is holding a contest to determine the shirt’s design, and the winner stands to gain $2,000 and a new iPhone.
I didn’t notice when I stopped receiving my Google Alerts. It’s one of those things you pass over until one day you’re all "why didn’t I get something on this?" I assumed my subscription had run out and I’d have to set them up again – which I found to be very annoying.
According to some new statistics, Gmail users are young, rich, and tech-savvy (or younger, richer, and savvier than users of Yahoo Mail and Hotmail, at least). Gmail’s market share is also steadily – and quickly – rising. Yet there’s some bad news for the Mountain View team, as well: their product is getting trounced overall.
It just occurred to me that if I look at the on-line services I used most, there’s not really a clear winner when it comes to who gets the bulk of my online attention. Here’s the current list along with the current owner of each (since 3 of the 4 were acquisitions):
The Securities and Exchange Commission suspended securities trading of 35 companies yesterday for their spammy ways. Entitled "Operation Spamalot," the SEC is targeting these companies because of artificial inflation of stock prices caused by spam campaigns.
Whatever it was, it seems to have passed like a 24-hour stomach bug, and GMail, at least from this office, is working again. But GMail was, most definitely and desperately, broken, longer for some than others, curses raining down with all the pulled-out hair.
Have you have seen Google’s Gmail theater videos? They’re short instructional videos using characters/puppets made out of office supplies extolling the virtues and features of Gmail. They’re whimsical and fun… you know, typical Google. Now they’re showing up in AdSense spots.
The company that recently won the rights to the GMail trademark in the UK has taken its case Stateside. And if Independent International Investment Research (IIIR) is successful claiming its stake to GMail in the US as well, your @gmail.com address could change to @googlemail.com instead.
One of Gmail’s biggest bragging points is that it offers an ever-increasing amount of storage. It’s a new year, though, and the times, they are a-changing (with apologies to Bob Dylan for that line). Gmail’s storage capacity appears to have leveled off at 2800 megabytes.
Microsoft has increased the storage space in Hotmail to one gigabyte, bringing it in line with what Yahoo Mail offers.
Today, Google announced the launch of a new mobile client for its increasingly popular Gmail service. The client is designed to give users the same look and feel that they experience in using Gmail for the web, but with the portability and ease of use that mobile technology offers.
Gmail has become pretty much omnipresent in its popularity, and Google Reader also received positive reviews after its last round of tweaks. Now, Mihai Parparita, a member of the Google Reader team, has combined the two. Users of his Greasemonkey script will be able to receive feeds in Gmail.
If you’ve been annoyed by the inability to delete all of the spam in your Gmail account with one fell click, you can rest easy now-that feature should soon be available. Google’s mail service should also allow users to apply their filters to old e-mails, and not just incoming ones.
Rakesh Agrawal, President and CEO of Snapstream, decided to experiment switching from Microsoft Outlook to Google’s Gmail for all of his email, including business email.
Devin switched his site’s email over to Gmail For Domains, and he’s written up a review, complete with screenshots.
