Gmail on Orkut

As of yesterday, you need a Gmail account to sign into Orkut instead of the plain login. What a smart move by Google.

First, they create a social networking service that’s bound to be very popular. Then they start a free email service that offers more space than anybody else. Some time later, when the novelty of a 1GB email account has worn off and the social network has grown to a huge size, they combine the two. This should add a large chunk of new accounts to Gmail.
