I've just noticed this (new, I guess) kind of warning on Gmail: "this account is currently being used in 1 other location at this IP"

This is a welcome feature. I really wished Gmail would add more paranoid and security related notes and items like this one. I (most of us?) have most of their online and offline life summarized in Gmail and I always have in mind scary stories like this one.

    Feature is not new. Gmail Blog wrote about it almost 4 months ago :) http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2008/07/remote-sign-out-and-info-to-help-you.html
    But for sure is very needful.
