Here’s the Thanksgiving letter that greeted me when I went to sign into Gmail this morning. Why do people like Google again? Oh yeah, it’s the people.
A Gobble approach to email.
In 1621, a few hundred Pilgrims and Native Americans sat down to celebrate a bountiful harvest. The feast lasted three days, and included fowl, venison, fish, berries, watercress, lobster, dried fruit, clams, and plums. There was no pumpkin pie, however. There was also an alarming lack of user-friendly webmail services.
Now, 383 years later, it’s once again time to celebrate what has come to be known as Thanksgiving, a time to gather with family and friends and give thanks for all that we have. We have many things to be thankful for. But mostly, we are thankful for you, our users, who remind us of why we work so hard all year and why we love what we do. That’s better than all the dried fruit and clams in the world.
Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for making our approach to email yours.
