Thank God for Gmail... But I avoid it

Points to a BW Online review of Gmail, which admires the innovation but dislikes the service
Stephen Baker

When BW Online asked me write a review of Google's Gmail, I immediately thought about all the things I like about the service, especially its gobs of storage. But then I thought: If I like it so much, why don't I use it more? Some would say that the The review outs me as a Luddite. One commenter, "JackLink," writes: "You might as well go back to fax machines, land lines and slate and chalk."

I'm wondering about the demographics of Gmail enthusiasts. Are they younger and/or more tech-oriented than the mainstream? Maybe even the question dates me. After all, the young people I live with chat all the time and barely use e-mail.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
