Now I Can SSH To Gmail Server And Read Email In Text Terminal!

Customize Gmail appearance to Linux terminal theme.For the first time, you can now make a SSH connection to Gmail server and read email in text console, if you never feel happy with the graphical user interface (GUI) applied in Mac OS, GNOME/KDE of Linux, or Microsoft Windows OS.

No, this is just a JOKE, not a true (technical) news :-D

For those who have Gmail account and Gmailed recently, you know that’s Gmail theme. If you’re not happy with Google plain-white theme design, you may now customize the feel and look of your Gmail with the predefined themes in Gmail Settings page (on the new tab named Themes).

For “black black-theme saves energy” believers, you can set Gmail theme to Terminal or Contrast Black to save monitor from consuming extra electric-power.

Beside the static theme, there are some dynamic themes where your Gmail account will periodically change graphics that match with your selected theme and the city/country you’re travelling to. For example, this dialog box pops up when I selected the Graffiti or Planets theme:

Gmail dynamic theme will automatically change graphic to match with your selected theme and location you are currently staying at.
Gmail dynamic theme will automatically change graphic to match with your selected theme and location you are currently staying at.

If you are bored looking at the email account that never change the look and feel or you are in the mood of having something different, Gmail theme could be your answer!

So, have you Gmailed today, or thinking of switching to Gmail (just for the theme function)?

(Note: If you find Gmail takes time to load after using the theme, then it’s likely caused by the problem of (dynamic/graphical) theme. In that case, remember to fall back to the default plain-white theme. Optionally, inform Gmail team that you feel suck of the theme loading time :-D).
