Google domination

Google is taking over the universities as well. Today we were notified that our current email system (webmail.asu.edu) is being replaced by — would you believe it — gmail. They are trying to ooh and aah everyone with the chat and calendar features that will now be available. I set up the trial account and it looks exactly the same as my regular gmail account. I will even be able to link my two accounts together at some point, and read them all from the same page. Less hassle, I’m down with that. I still think it’s weird though. I still remember using the archaic pine system some 10 years ago. And now we’re all hip and cool and using Gmail??? Whoa dude.
