The World's 1st Free 1-Gig Email Service

Looks like SpyMac beat Google to become the world's first free 1-Gigabyte service for the masses. GMail will probably overtake them once it launches; especailly since SpyMac is a haven for us MacHeads.

That's it. Let me get a Mac. And SMASH IT like I do all the other desktops. Posted by: ej on April 5, 2004 09:35 PM
Wow, that SpyMac looks pretty spiffy. I should switch to them to host my own site. It seems a pretty good deal... Posted by: PatCH on April 5, 2004 10:06 PM
ej: you would be too heart-broken if you did a foolish thing like that. Macs are just too, too beautiful. PatCH: Should?! Make the switch with ej. He'll walk you thru the process. Right ej? Posted by: ronn on April 6, 2004 12:02 AM
I signed up for it... It seems slow... Posted by: Duncan on April 6, 2004 02:02 AM
Duncan: I wouldn't know. I signed up for a SpyMac account some time ago and have yet to use it. I don't plan on using the email since I already have several other accounts. Now if my blog takes off and I get more than the current 5-7 emails a week... Posted by: ronn on April 6, 2004 09:17 PM
I just signed up because they give away 100 megs of free hosting... Im not sure quite how to use it yet though! Posted by: Duncan on April 6, 2004 10:56 PM
BTW did you have any trouble getting Google to approve your ads? Do the ads make you any cash? Posted by: Duncan on April 6, 2004 10:58 PM
Edited Duncan: I like the SpyMac giveaways, just don't have any pressing need for them. Especially since I already pay for my own webhosting and can pretty much do whatever I want without restrictions. AdSense has been a bust. It did pay for a single month when I hosted a copy of the original Mac ad from the Super Bowl (1984). You'd probably have better luck with your cleaner look and blog style.
