Being a GMAIL user Spotted this little add-on: Well not an addon - more a "Added Feature" to GMail
First impression - "Google copies Twitter" or is it "Twitter with a Google twist" Me thinks Google is a year late to catch the twitter train - or are they hoping this to be an enterprise train?

I noted that there is ability to link to Twitter, Picasa web, Flickr...but it appears flaky - or has it been /.ed?

Noted a couple of comments in the tech media: http://blogs.zdnet.com/Hinchcliffe/?p=1212&tag=nl.e539

I have a g-mail account someplace but I've never used it and haven't got a clue where it is or how to get on to it.

Managed to avoid gmail, Google Docs and other Google offerings. Use the Google Toolbar. That is about the extent. I remove the Google Desktop whenever I find it.

I saw this too.

Great. Now how the hell do we separate web-mail from social networking to let users have some personal web access but not spend all day on mafia wars?
