I'm surprised that Google is so wedded to the Gmail name. Most of
their other products and services seem to be called Google something:
Google Earth, Goole Maps, Google Desktop, Google Groups, for instance.
One of their most valuable assets is the Google brand, so it seems
strange that they don't want to use it for this service.
