Announced yesterday, you can now keep track of what you need to do within Gmail. Sounds great, but Rob over at Regular Geek makes a few valid points on this new app and wonders why they didn’t just team up with a task management system like Remember the Milk. Some of the most notable being:
- Gmail and Gtalk have had issues lately and this app is bound to have problems on its first release.
- Remember the Milk makes revenue from selling ‘pro’ subscriptions.
On top of that, Google has been laying off people lately. I think the case can be made that they are spreading themselves too thin.
