Gmail turns 5

Google and Gmail, also 'Blogger', Google earth, etc. has changed the way we remain 'connected'. Check out http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/
Wished a close friend yesterday on his birthday. While we remain in touch on gmail ( both on gmail), I chose to call him to wish. He underlined the fact only a birthday could get me to make an ISD CALL !

My preferred 'mode of contact' is usually sms/mail. Now, with the focus on cost-cutting, all the more reason to avoid an ISD call ! ( I am quite vocal about it, to manage expectations of close relatives and friends - mom calls me, not otherwise, as she wants to help her son in his cost cutting focus!)

In these tough times, it is more critical to be in touch. While a phone call or a long letter is a preferred option, e-mail can be almost as effective. Kudos to Google... Many happy returns...

Got the hint sir. Agree with you though to an extent. but you have to agree that gmail or any mail for that mater cant take the pleasure of hearing each other's voice with its inherent nuances of pleasure, jokes, happiness etc.
