Would Google Replace Gmail in the Next Five Years?

Well, at least that is what Computerworld’s Mike Elgan predicts in his recent article. He writes, “Gmail represents a dying class of products that, like Google Reader, puts control in the hands of users, not signal-harvesting algorithms.”

I’m not sure if Google will kill Gmail like it has done with reader and Wave, simply because it is their core product in Google for Work (previously known as Google Apps), the business/paid version of Gmail. Nevertheless, check out Mike Elgan’s article. It’s a pretty interesting read. Check out the full article here.

By the way, have seen Google’s invitation-only service called Inbox. I’ve requested for an invite but yet to receive one. It’s apparently gmail completely re-invented.I wonder how well it’s to fair.I honestly did not like their tabs feature in Gmail introduced sometime back.
