Google Mail and a happy valentine for all

Another change today at Google UK, now anyone can sign up for GMail — which used to be invite-only:

google valentine uk

You'll note that they call it Google Mail, and that it's still in Beta (since 2004, that's a VERY old “web 2.0” service :p). French users are treated too, but here it's still called GMail (marketing probably missed the memo):

google valentine fr

You'll also note the Valentine logo, for which El Reg shows little Luuuurv. The vu'tures have no sense of design ;-).


Why do I have the feeling today's title of the page is Googe and not Google... The strawberry-chocolate really looks like a g not a gl.

I see the L, didn't strike me as Googe. Must be my sensitive, arty side :p.
