Google working on multiple-account sign-in, finally

The time has come for me to say goodbye to Facebook too

All your address are belong to Google

Google now allows you to associate non-Gmail accounts with your Google account. Why does this matter? Well, by associating other e-mail accounts, invites such as events for your Google Calendar will be automatically added, even when sent to a non-Gmail account. Also, you get the benefit of using your non-Gmail address to log into Google instead of your Google credentials. So where is this little...
