    Again, Ill believe it when I see it. I have heard from many other sources that it is in fact an april fools joke. Due to the fact that no one can be sure, I would think all the news sources would be forced to cover it as if it was not. Ill wait and see.

    Didnt stop me from signing up for the newsletter thingy they provide:)

    The site is up, the service just isn't. It's on many news sites, and Google has gone to a lot of trouble creating EULAs and similar stuff. If it's fake, it's one of the most elaborate April Fool's jokes of all time.

    It is scheduled to begin this year back about August when they said that.
    Of course, we are familiar with schedules aren't we :D

    Only beta now - about 1,000 participants.
    As it is ad-supported I see little difficulty in having 1Gb of space per user. I mean, they don't need all of it the first day. Storage can always be added as required.
    I have every intention of signing up when the service is offered to the public. For now I'm signed up for the updates - available at the second link above.

    No - the timing might seem poorly chosen but this has been in development for some time.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    I love google and all of the Genius features that they have come up with, Launguage translations, Image search, also note that 4 out of every 5 searches on the internet use Google. :shock:

    Oh yea, I also love google. Had the IE google tool bar untill I got mozilla:) And If it is real, I also fully plan on making it my primary email service, no more MSN emails that I can't report as spam :)

    But Im still not 100% sure. Like I said, I have heard elsewhere that it is in fact fake. Though that just makes it thier word against yours. Well have to see. I cant wait!
