Just a few hours ago, Google rolled out its Themes feature to my personal GMail account. I have to say, this is a really cool addition -- while GMail's spartan look and feel and clean interface design has always been its trademark, I've always thought it was a bit too generic. With Themes, the interface remains clean but adds a bit of nice color and graphics to the end-user experience.

Besides the obvious holiday and seasonal themes (Chanukah anyone? Rosh Hashanah?) I can certainly see the potential for Google to partner with a number of other brands to do some cool product placements. Say, Coca-Cola Zero theme? "Mac Theme"? Or how about a Sci-Fi Channel Battlestar Galactica theme? Star Trek: The Movie perhaps?

What GMail themes do you want? Talk Back and Let Me Know.
