free account to users

Finally being a blogger at pays off.
From CEO of pyra Evan Williams
They're ramping up the Gmail beta user base. To help out, we issued some invites to Blogger users. If you're an active Blogger user (by some definition I'm not sure what is), and you'd like to try Gmail, just log in. (If you're like me and use BlogThis! from google toolbar all the time, you might not notice. You need to go to the home page.) If a "Special Notice" inviting you to try Gmail appears above your list of blogs, you're a lucky winner (if not, please be patient :).

I got an invite, and signed up for it. I like it so far. but worried if my personal emails would show up in google websearch hmmm!!

The next big thing? Jewellery in Eyes

via Engadget

It’s eyeball jewelry.

They say it takes about fifteen minutes and there are no known side effects. You mean besides broadcasting to the whole world that you are stupid enough to risk blindness to have a freaking half-moon implanted in your eyeball? And wouldn’t fell like you had something in your eye for the rest of your life?
