Confusing Google Mail

Google Mail (no longer Gmail) has a confusing feature. I recently got a Google Mail account to test out Google Talk. Since I was already logged into my Google account it asked if I wanted my new email account to be part of it. I said yes. Then I couldn’t log into my Google Account for anything else… the problem is they’ve decided my new Google Mail email address is my primary address and that’s what I need to use to log in. Ah well. email, Google Accounts
