Yahoo and GMail in free-email smackdown

More information from the New York Times and Slashdot, courtesy of unanon

Maybe Yahoo should have waited a little longer to debut the new space, appreciated though it is, because my Yahoo account is not loading for crap, so half the time I don't know if I have new messages in my big new nice shiny mailbox.

And then GMail. Well, I have GMail now, though I haven't connected it to LiveJournal because of the complaints about LJ comment notification emails. And I've had the account less than 24 hours (and don't have any invite codes yet, because I know that's what you're thinking), but so far... I like it. It's a cleaner interface than Google, and ariedana and I think it's kind of like email and IM rolled into one. Yeah. So, the best place to get a hold of me these days is probably kellinator at gmail.

At any rate, I'm curious to watch what happens.

And yeah, count me in as one of those who feels cool just to have a GMail account. Like I got geek cred or something. I'm in the club. Yes, this is silly, but I think it's also a natural human reaction to anything involving invite codes.
