E-mail is not a conversation a.k.a. Google doesnot understand e-mail


Finally we can turn off conversations in Gmail – Hooray ! This is one of those “What were they thinking” moment.

The good (and smart) folks in Google never understood e-mail or may be that they are trying to make it something it is not … Google had a recent blog on this subject … In the blog Google calls it a “feature” and “recent innovation” – Yikes … Boys and Girls at Google, I have news for you … this “recent innovative feature” of displaying e-mail in descending chronological order, has been in existence for a few years, that too in e-mail clients built by mere mortals  ;o)  … Sorry couldn’t resist !

Remember the ill-fated Google Wave or even the Goggle Buzz …. IMHO, all are Google trying to fit a square peg in a round hole …. IM is a conversation, chat is a conversation, … am sure there will be other newer ways of conducting an on-line conversation …. I rest my case
