We missed this bit of news several days ago however given people's continued interest in Gmail accounts I thought it was still worth a post. Google's Gmail service which remains on beta (and invitation only) has captured a lot of attention after it was confirmed that it will provide 1GB of storage space.

As our forum member Rick pointed out earlier today, beta invitiations are going fast and continue to be sold on eBay in some cases, while the typical going rate is about $30-40 USD, some have sold for as much as $200.

Any of you got your account yet? I was lucky enough to get (thanks to buddy Andres) "juliofranco@..." already, the service is nice and fast, as one should expect from the search giant.
