Gmail knows when to admit its shortcomings

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Recently was trying to upload an attachment in an email over a flaky attachment, and I got the error below. I had uploaded like 10/12Mb over an extremely slow connection, and naturally I was quite frustrated. But when I read this error, I ended up laughing…

Yes, the error was tooootallly lame, but yes, it was also true that Gmail started without much features and slowly became a close-to-enterprise grade web software that I can't live without today. So Google, you're forgiven, and I'll still be a strong supporter! :)

Companies should take a pointer from Google to be forthcoming to its employees and customers. I tooootallly hate the whole PR PR thing!
