Gmail – A soap to clean out body spam.
My very first brush with Gmail was back in 2004 when I was invited into the beta version of it. Gmail has single handedly changed how we get our email and how much we can keep of it. In the entire four years that I’ve used it, I’ve only had maybe a dozen pieces of spam make it to my inbox, and not a single legit email in my spam box. I’ve even set up another account which I’ll route mail from other places so it can essentially scrub out the spam. Naturally I’ve thought that if Gmail is so good at scrubbing my inbox clean, why not use it to scrub my body clean? Well in Russia it seems they went a step too far, by coming up with a soap called Gmail.
No it doesn’t have free Wi-Fi or doesn’t vibrate every time you get an email in the shower. It just appears to be a joke. But I wouldn’t mind one inside my bathroom.
