Google Wave Invites
Google has today released 100,000 “preview” invites, for the long awaited Wave communication and collaboration tool. These are considered “pre-beta” as many of Waves features are yet to be completed. The gradual release brings back the memories of the hyped up Gmail launch back in 2004 on a similiar “Invite Only” program.
This lead to a whole bunch of opportunists (putting it politely) selling Invites on eBay, well not at all to my suprise on the day Wave previews are released we’ve already managed to find one (click to view):
This particular auction is offering 5 invites for £200! which seems a little steep to me, however I wouldn’t be at all suprised if some die hard Google Fan buys it
