The ancients speak of a day when the stars and planets shall align and something that people believe would never happen shall come to pass. I believe today is that day.
The dark clouds gathered over the internet, as the foretold alignment of planets defined the actions of those men who had waited millenia. The storm crashed through the clouds with a thunderous roar, almost immediately followed by the flash of lightning tearing the sky apart. Men and women alike huddled close together with their families, sure that the end was upon them.
And so it came to pass that the unforseen day did finally arrive and Gmail did leave it's beta state of five years and became a full product.
