  1. Google reportedly plans to add a Twitter-like service to Gmail later this week. Twitter, in case this is your first day on the Web, is a microblogging service that allows users to post messages of up to 140 characters, which are displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to subscribers. Facebook also offers a status update system.

    is it just me, or does this seem rather pointless and useless?

    As long as they don't put too much emphasis on it..
    Still meh.
     
  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!?
