  1. Google reportedly plans to add a Twitter-like service to Gmail later this week.

Facebook also offers a status update system.

    As long as they don't put too much emphasis on it..

  4. Far more important then wasting time on this rather meaningless feature would be to:

    A) Allow the choice to disable Conversation Threading on an individual email and/or global basis. It absolutely makes GMail a disaster once an email has more than a handful of threads (common).

    B) Build in real Contact Sharing in Google Apps.

    Not sure where Google's head is at these days!?
