Find the number of mistakes from this Google Talk invitation:

Dan wants to stay in better touch using some of Google's coolest new products.

If you already have Gmail or Google Talk, visit:
mail.google.com/mail/b---...
You'll need to click this link to be able to chat with Dan.

To get Gmail – a free email account from Google with over 2,800 megabytes of storage – and chat with Dan, visit:
mail.google.com/mail/a---...

Gmail offers:
- Instant messaging right inside Gmail
- Powerful spam protection
- Built-in search for finding your messages and a helpful way of organizing emails into "conversations"
- No pop-up ads or untargeted banners – just text ads and related information that are relevant to the content of your messages

All this, and its yours for free. But wait, there's more! By opening a Gmail
account, you also get access to Google Talk, Google's instant messaging service:

google.com/talk/

Google Talk offers:
- Web-based chat that you can use anywhere, without a download
- A contact list that's synchronized with your Gmail account
- Free, high quality PC-to-PC voice calls when you download the Google Talk client

Gmail and Google Talk are still in beta. We're working hard to add new features and make improvements, so we might also ask for your comments and suggestions periodically. We appreciate your help in making our products even better!

Thanks,
The Google Team

Only one: "over 2,800 megabytes of storage". Now they could write "over 6500 megabytes".

And perhaps "Google's coolest new products" may be an error too...

For the first one, Google has never updated this number everywhere it has been written, bottom line of Gmail excepted. ("more google products")

I've found another one:
"...Google Talk are still in beta. We're working hard to add new features and make improvements..."

The Google Talk client hasn't had a new feature in ages. If they're working hard to add features to it, then clearly, they aren't working hard enough.

I think the main mistake is that you don't need a Gmail account to use Google Talk: a Google account is enough. Another mistake: "All this, and its yours for free."

Why is that wrong?

James asks a good question, why it would be wrong? Did you pay for Google Talk? :-P

It's wrong because "its" should've been "it's".

Ionut speaks English better than most English people.
