Gear Live GMail Giveaway
Google's GMail free email service has been around for months now, but is still in beta. This means that if you want an account, you need to be invited by someone who is a beta tester - or else you are out of luck. Being that Gear Live is all about the readers, we are now your hook up.
We will be posting GMail invitation links with every new story posted. They will not be so obvious, so you will have to click around to find it each time. Who knows - the graphic used with a story might be an invitation link, one of the ads on the right may be a hidden invitation link, or one of the links within an actual story might link to GMail rather than the subject itself. We will try to be creative, emphasis on try. We will probably fail miserably. Please let us know if you pick up an invite from this site!
Nonetheless, to get this kicked off, click on the GMail logo to the right for the first GMail invitation.
(Thank you to everyone who sent in GMail invitations for us to give away. If anyone else would like to help out and donate invites, send them to me at andru

Good job guys :) Very cool idea. However I think you should remove the links once they are used because they reveal the email address of the person who has signed up for the account!
Either remove or redirect the links to a "ohnos you missed it" page or something :)
