Seems like Facebook and Google are mightier than snow and sleet...

Mail War II

War of The Titans

Six years ago (only six years? It seems like eternity), Google launched GMail and started a “Mail War” with its largest rivals at the time, Yahoo and Microsoft. GMail managed to revolutionize e-mail, forever changing end-user’s expectations of web mail services.
Now Facebook is challenging Google with its new Facebook Messages service (a.k.a Project Titan), which is considered by many to be the first offensive in a new “Mail War“. It’s finally here, folks. Welcome to “Mail War II”.
How will this one end? No one can tell. But one thing’s for sure – this war will spark a new technology race that could redefine our mail experience (maybe even our entire digital communication experience). It would probably take a while ’till we start feeling these changes. In the meanwhile, we can all sit back and enjoy the show. And yes, it’s gonna be dirty.
