Journal Journal: Why is most Google stuff beta?

When I looked in my Gmail inbox tonight, I noticed that it was still beta, and then I remembered that it has been in the beta form ever since I had my account there. But why is it still in the beta form? Is it for legal reasons (so they won't be held liable for hacking)? There are a bunch of other Google programs that are also in beta form. Why?

If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.
