Want a Gmail account? Get a mobile phone first. Oh yes, and be in the US. Google is now opening up Gmail even further, but unlike tools such as Hotmail, where you just open an account, you have to have an activation code sent to your mobile phone. Apparently this is to stop people creating thousands of accounts. Well yes, I kinda see the thought process behind it, but it's very clunky if you ask me. You can pretty much already get as many Gmail accounts as you want; I could in theory already create several hundred without any difficulty at all. I think the hype over Gmail is all dead and buried now - it's just another email system, so why continue to make things difficult for no reason?
