Oogle versus oogle-less

19 October 2005

With any new, popular, funky web-based service, there’s always going to be a digital divide. You know; those who have your_name@hotmail.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. @gmail.com versus @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.
