Gmail for Business

Do you own or operate a business? You should take advantage of the ease and usefulness of Gmail by getting it for your domain. You can use Google Apps to add Gmail to your domain. Then, set up to 50 email accounts for free. It doesn't cost you anything!

Google Apps also has paid services for organizations wanting more. With Gmail, you have the easy to use interface along with its speed and resourceful lab add ons.

So, if you haven't already, I'd highly suggest you check it out. In addition, if you're looking for a a loan or cash advance for your business, hit me up. I can get you a discounted rate.

Google Buzz and Gmail

I gave Google Buzz a try, but haven't been using it anymore. I have it linked to my Twitter, so when I update that, it goes there. And I think it's also connected to one of my blogs. But I don't update those often either.

Unfortunately, Facebook still wins out. I'd like to switch over to Google Buzz, but it's just not any good yet. Nobody's on it, it's not social enough and it's slow on my computer. I did like Orkut, and I think integrating that with Gmail (and calling it Buzz) would have been a good idea.

My favorite thing about Orkut was the Karma. Google Buzz has no real social extras like that. It's purely a Twitter rip off, plugged directly into your email client.

I'd like to see some improvements overall. I think it will get there and be useful. I did enjoy the early days of Gmail, when this blog was first started. It was fun, and Gmail was awesome. There hasn't been many Google products that have been as great since. I was enthusiastic about Wave, but it's just not that useful. Buzz, same thing. Voice....probably better with a smart phone to use it on.
