Gmail Joins The Billion Users Club

I didn't realize until now that Gmail is just now hitting the billion users mark. For some reason I thought they passed that milestone a long time ago.

Google revealed this week that its Web-based email service now has a billion users, proving yet again that it not only knows how to build and maintain a popular online tool, but also that email is a ways off from crawling into its deathbed. The news of Gmail’s breakthrough figure comes courtesy of Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who revealed the data on Monday during an earnings call with investors.
