I have a Gmail account. I don't really use it all that often, but I have one. I think I needed to set one up to use Google's file sharing system. I forget what the actual name of it was, but it has since gone the way of Sega. Then I had to switch my Blogger account from my old email account to a Gmail account. That confuses me because I still log in using my old email account, but my Gmail account is the one that Blogger uses. Whatevs.
So once in a blue moon I check my Gmail account to make sure no one I know is using it by mistake. 8 times out of 10 there isn't any activity on it. But I noticed a new feature under my Inbox the last time I checked it. Something called Buzz. I ignored it because, well...it didn't interest me. I thought it was gonna be buzz-worthy news topics or something, even though it made no sense that the link would be on my mail page. Again...whatevs.
Then today I saw an article about Google Wave. About how it is gonna be a new social networking device that could eventually compete with Twitter. Why on Earth would anyone want to do that? Well, I guess Facebook stole MySpace's thunder recently, so maybe Google thought they could buy in on the act by taking on Twitter. Except there is this automatic set-up that uses your address book to start you on your list of who you follow. Sounds like some privacy nightmares, if you ask me...or her. One final time...whatevs.
Anyone using Google Buzz out there? How about Google Wave? Aren't they kinda the same thing? Am I the one one who feels like getting high after digesting those brand names? Is the drive-thru at Taco Bell still open? These are all valid questions.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Are any of the cool kids are doing it?
