-- The holidays are almost here, and Google's got some freebies for you -- if you sign up soon.
The Gmail team is giving away sets of Gma
il-themed stickers right now. Some are just for fun, like the glittery red Gmail logo sticker. Others have a specific function in mind, like the Gmail shortcut stickers that you can stick onto your keyboard to help remember hotkeys. (Google promises they peel off easily.)
There's also a collectable bookplate-style sticker with a "This belongs to firstname.lastname@example.org" space for your own inscription. It comes in three designs: one featuring an old-school computer, one with a e-mail-happy unicorn, and one with a friendly robot who's just beaming with Gmail giddiness.
Google's willing to send you a set of your own. All you have to do is ask -- and send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:
Send me some Gmail stickers already P.O. Box 391420 Mountain View, CA 94039-1420
Anyone outside the U.S. should make sure to include an international reply coupon. Otherwise, a regular $0.42 stamp on the inside envelope is all you need.
Google says it'll send only one per person while supplies last, and -- we know you were wondering -- it promises it won't collect any of your contact info.
