GMail public sign up…by text message

Writing about web page

Looks like Google has had another bright idea…what a surprise. They are now allowing sign up to GMail to everyone, not just by invitation. However, the twist is that they are going to make you put in a mobile phone number and they will send you an activation code. Genius. Not only do they take a huge step towards preventing account abuse through spammers signing up for masses of accouts, but they also manage to get their grubby little hands on your mobile phone number.

You’ve got to hand it to them, you really do.
