Today is the launch of Fmail today may signify two things: one, Gmail has an actual competitor, and two: most of you (or maybe just me) won’t care. The most Fmail could be is a service that allows you to get your own email address (i.e firstname.lastname@example.org) and use it with your friends and on Facebook.com. Facebook could take it up a notch and design a completely new site that’s only dedicated to mail — then allow me to forward all of the Fmail to Gmail (you can obviously see I’m not leaving the Google camp anytime soon).
Or Zuckerberg could unveil a totally radical, totally new concept which would kill Gmail — wait — words like Gmail “killer” are completely overrated. The word “killer” in fact is the essence of “hype” another word that’s completely useless. In fact Fmail (or whatever it might be called) is something that should be watched. You know, maybe it’ll be interesting, or another intrusion of your privacy, or just email for Facebook users. That makes sense.
Note: Obviously this is slow news day on LaptopMemo. Get used it it sometimes.
