Over 600,000 transactions are passed between IT and operational systems every hour to keep the electricity supply and distribution network in Ireland up and running.

Google's founders were willing to sell to Excite for under $1 million in 1999—but Excite turned them down.

Gmail was orginally "Garfield Mail" (the cat) and owned by Jim Davis, Google bought the name afterwards.
In Germany you couldn't have a "Gmail" account, it had to be called "GoogleMail" as there was already a company called Gmail who provided the service of recieveing your emails, printing them out and posting them to you, surprise surprise, that company sold the name when their own company tanked.

Finally, put a + sign anywhere in your Gmail address when you sign up to mailing lists, you will still receive the mail, but Google will organise them. Good way to direct stuff you might not want (or definitely don't want to miss)

Why is this a good idea? Hotmail/Outlook are at this crap as well. The postman does not open and read my mail or make a decision about "what's important" before he sticks it through the letterbox so why the flying feck should google or hotmail??
