Switching your friends over to Gmail

LOL. I love this new marketing strategy Google started.

They sent out a video out on youtube called Help your friends make the switch to Gmail. You can find it here:

Here's the description of the video:
http://www.emailintervention.com You've probably already improved the lives of your friends and family members by helping them switch to Gmail, but what about that one friend who still hasn't made the switch? It's time to take a stand and stage an intervention.

When you send out the intervention package to your friends, they will receive the video linked to this post. I found it absolutely hilarious because I was just trying to convince someone not long before I found the video, to leave Hotmail, and go Google.

I love the jab at the _"older email services" they make in the video.

Emailing is an old form of communication, for us "OLDIES"
 
hah, Email is far from dead or for oldies :)
 
Do you guys remember what you used before the advent of email ? I remember using BBS's and ednet. I think there was a localized network version of emails on those systems. I missed the online ascii games they had on them BBS's, especially this one gangster, terriotorial, drug dealing one called Colors.

Oh BBS's... the old days... I can hear the sound of my 14.4 baud modem connecting like it was just yesterday. ERRkkkakearageugrarkulll zummmm errrrrkkkkk kerrrrrrr..

But yea.. I really can't remember what it was like before personal email. Im pretty sure you could log on to irc through those bbs's and you can check your emails on there.
