So this is where the Nigerian Prince lives? I would thought it would be bigger with his UK Lottery winnings and all.

Facebook Email Is Coming

Posted by: Mike Pomranz | November 15, 2010 at 2:00PM

The time to be afraid is now.

Today, Facebook unveiled their new “modern messaging system."  Though they don't want to say it outright, the big news here is that Facebook wants to take on email.

But they refuse to use the word "email" because "It's too formal," says Mark Zuckerberg.  And when he says, "It's too formal," what he really means is, "Your average Facebook user is a shortsighted douchebag."  But I digress.

TechCrunch gets down to the heart of the matter:

"Yes, everyone can get an @facebook.com email address if they want…. And yes, IMAP support is coming soon too."

So essentially, Facebook is going after current email king Gmail, who convinced us that we should switch our Yahoo email address to Gmail because Gmail was better than Yahoo who had briefly confused us into thinking that they were better than Hotmail who got our business after we realized that paying for AOL was a waste of money.

Which all begs the question, How often are we supposed to change email addresses?  And how many times?  And then you have work email address that constantly change because you constantly get fired for taking naps under your desk.

And then you know some other service is right around the corner.  In 2011, Facebook will be begging me to use pomranz@facebook.com.  And then by 2012 someone will be pushing for pomranz@twitter.com.

And then luckily in 2012 the world ends and we can all be free.

Would you change to make Facebook your primary email account?  Yes??  Get out.

Warning: You Can Run Out of Space in Gmail!

Posted by: Mike Pomranz | August 11, 2010 at 3:00PM

Mashable warned earlier today that a few big-time emailers are finally running out of space in their Gmail inbox:

"So much for, 'never delete an e-mail again.' When Gmail first launched in 2004, its massive storage space was a highly touted feature….  However, users…now send larger e-mail attachments and archive more messages."

I want to make sure Tosh.0 blog readers are prepared if their Gmail accounts ever get too full, so here is some advice on how to start cleaning out your inbox:

  1. Delete all emails discussing illegal activities. It's not a good idea keep emails to your bookie, mob contact and mistress available for other to read regardless …but especially if you're running out of space.
  2. Delete all emails with your grandmother. She's been dead for 4 years.  Get over it.
  3. Delete all the terrible videos you have saved in your Outbox that you sent to Tosh.0. Most of them you don't even need to save.  You realize you can watch Star Wars Kid on YouTube now, right?
  4. Delete all your Facebook notifications. You haven't even read them in your Facebook inbox.  Stop wasting space on multiple sites!
  5. Delete all your listserv emails. You haven't even considered visiting that Nintendo 64 message board in a decade.
  6. Delete all emails between you and your ex-girlfriend. You'll find other ways to cry yourself to sleep at night.

Follow these steps and you won't ever have to worry about running out of space on your Gmail.

Got any additional suggestions?  Let us know.
