For those of you who still don't know, our much-beloved Gmail is finally out of beta!! After staying in beta for 5 years, and long after it vanquished other webmail clients to emerge as the best email system, not to mention twisting the stretching the definition of beta to a point that the term "beta" no longer conveys any meaning, finally it decides to scrap the beta label, hurray!
Also, I note how hard it's to post to news aggregator sites such as reddit.com, digg.com or hacker news. The moment I got the announcement from my rss, the link had already being posted on those aggregator sites. Internet has really taken the meaning of "breaking news" to a new level.
