With any new, popular, funky web-based service, there’s always going to be a digital divide. You know; those who have
email@example.com as opposed to
yournameX46@hotmail.com; six-digit ICQ numbers as opposed to nine-digit; Flickr sign-in as opposed to Yahoo! sign-in.
And now, it’s happening again.
@googlemail.com. Not the end of the world, I guess, but
gmail is so much more succinct (and trips off the fingers easier).
This time, for once, I’ve got the mark of the early adopter.
