Gmail Is Taking Over The World; Here’s How To Take Over Gmail.

Few things have managed to change the landscape of the Internet in the way Gmail has. The initial launch of the service was, in and of itself, unique. Rather than just opening the doors and letting the public in, Google created a mystique around the service, requiring an invitation from a current user to get you into the party. The coveted invitations were so valuable that they sold for more than $100 on auction sites.

Shift Was Built for You. Yes, You!

When we started building Shift, I got really excited. Our Director of Product was even more excited (cc Michael). He's like a Doctor for software pain points; he just wants to find the cure. With only a small sample population of our friends and family, I knew Shift would fill a serious void, but we also knew it would be shrewd to launch Shift Preview to test our theory.
