Opinion: How Google’s Inbox Made me Care Even Less About my...

As soon as Google announced Inbox, it's brand new service which supposedly works in tandem with Gmail, I popped an email over to [email protected] to request an invite. It wasn't long before I received a reply and hopped right into organising my emails like never before. There was only one problem.
