To close out my night I've got to pass this along. Every techie worth his salt these days seems to have a GMail account and love it. GMail, like everything Google does, is the hottest thing going. It has only been by invitation thus far but now you can get gmail here:
If you would like or need a great personal email address, get it while you can. It's 2.5 gig of online storage with instant searching. Free pop access, and forwarding. And the interface is slick.
Some other great stuff from Google:

Great photo management software: http://www.picasa.com/index.php?tid=Y2NpZD0zNzQ4
Of course the Google Toolbar: http://toolbar.google.com/?promo=mor-tb-en
Google Maps: http://maps.google.com (try the hybrid)
