Google’s web based email, Gmail, was once only available if you knew someone on the service that could send you an invite. You could have also gone through the trouble and bought one for $250 on eBay. Well today Google announced that the service is now open for anyone that wants one, without an invite, or without sending an SMS to get an account. There is a free 2 GB of email storage for the taking if you don’t have an account yet. Of course the Gmail account comes with Google Calendar and Docs & Spreadsheets to use and store data in as well.
