As a long term, in the realms of the internet, google user I am a fan of almost all they do and in fact have the nexus one google phone as my primary connection to the world. When on a laptop I live my life in a chrome browser only fleeting to IE on a very rare and infrequent basis. Usually this occurs when I am giving support to someone who is confused, I instantly assume an IE user…… (but that is a different story).
I received an email so I was really excited reading this and it seemed to fit me spot on. I am great at playing with new tech and giving feedback – after all I write small business web apps and spend a lot of time tweaking bugs or changes to the clients needs:

Then I got to the third paragraph….. Do I really need a US mailing address to be a Beta tester as I am sure this is the level we are talking about.
Well I am here as a word of warning to all – I spent a few days annoyed at this and missed the end date due to some travelling and not being eligible. When I got to it in my inbox again (not rushing now) I thought I would click the link anyway and see if I could feedback my international view. Well the page was still open and had an option to put a UK address. The state seemed to be stuck on US so I do not think it will go any further but I should not have delayed in the first place…
Google let us do the testing I am perfect for the job……….
