Okay, so that isn’t actually a quote from Google in the title but I do wonder why is GMAIL still in beta?
I happened to notice last night that the product is still branded as beta – why? Is it for some weird tax loophole in the same way that most Greek properties are never quite finished? Or is it some counter to the American liable culture that because it’s beta we still use the product at our ‘own risk’ should information be hacked/lost/whatever…
Are they really not that confident in the product to still call it finished (it was launched some 3 years ago now and marked a public beta a year ago). I’m not, by the way, the first one to have this thought.
I wonder, maybe they’re going for some world record attempt for the longest product beta ever….
Does anyone know the answer?
