    1) Marketing. By implying there is a short supply of accounts available it increases consumer desire for the product.
    2) Marketing. Google is a brand name whose image is good among the techie croud.
    3) Marketing. Its the latest fad and everyone wants in so they dont be the one left out.

    All that doesnt mean the end product is any better though

    OK, just noticed this thread and thought I'd chip in some invites.

    I've got 4 left, pm me your email address and I'll send one to you.
