Gmail Motion

Google once again is revolutionizing how you interact with your email. Gmail first introduced the concept of labels, storage that grows with you, and threaded conversations. Google is now introducing… Gmail Motion.

I’ve been beta testing this for the past couple of months, and honestly I am pretty impressed. It took a little bit of adjusting to get the motions down, but once I did, creating emails, and manipulating messages was never easier. Watch the videos to get an idea of how Gmail Motion works.

In a word – amazing.

Gmail Down Today – 502 (Update: Gmail back up)

Apparently right now, Thursday Oct. 21 at 10:15am HST, Gmail is throwing a fit. This seems to be at least a nationwide issue per the current spaz happening among Twitter users. Though, Google’s Official Gmail Blog or Gmail on Twitter doesn’t have any report of the problem. It just shows how far Google’s reach is, and how many people rely on its services. Hopefully this outage isn’t too long. Will keep you posted.


Well seems as if it was a very brief outage, about 10 minutes. Gmail and Google Hosted all seem to be back up and running.
