Gmail is my holy grail. It’s my online quiet place. And yesterday Google Buzz came and crashed my pad like an old friend looking for a couch. It’s noisy, distracting and appears to be duplicating existing services that serve me quite well.

Nearly two months ago, shortly after the release of the Droid and subsequent escalation in chatter with respect to the “Google Phone” I discussed my complete dissatisfaction with the state of the iPhone as it pertained to Apple/AT&T and the impending threat (very serious threat) posed by the Google Phone.
