With a blog entry on Google Blog (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2005/08/sign-up-for-gmail.html) Google announced that gmail is open to public, It now accepts sign-ups via mobile.
The Beta logo on the gmail page still exists, also our invitations remain there.
I cannot see the sign up page maybe cause i am located to Greece, but if i do that using a host located at US the url for the sign up is located here https://www.google.com/accounts/SmsMailSignup1
Going on vacations without a lot of memory cards or a laptop is a really big mistake, so i bought a CompactDrive PD70X from eastgear.
The device came with a set of 2500mAh batteries from Sanyo, and a car charger. It is really small and is fast.
You can use it with one hand if you attach it on your belt with the provided case.
I put a 40GB disk inside and we are ready to go. No more laptop to unload my memory cards and i think that now is the time to start shooting using raw only.
