I Heart Google

Way to go guys, just when people start talking about Yahoo! you go ahead and DOUBLE the storage for every Gmail account. Sweet! (Note: This is not to say that I'm not still incredibly impressed by Yahoo!)

This is from Google's new features page:

G is for growth
Storage is an important part of email, but that doesn't mean you should have to worry about it. To celebrate our one-year birthday, we're giving everyone one more gigabyte. But why stop the party there? Our plan is to continue growing your storage beyond 2GBs by giving you more space as we are able. We know that email will only become more important in people's lives, and we want Gmail to keep up with our users and their needs. From Gmail, you can expect more.
Now not only do you have the best email app on the planet, but you're also offering more storage space than any web-based email I know of.

I just hope this isn't one of those April fools jokes, though if you check the front page of Gmail (you might need to sign out), this appears to be their April Fools Day joke:


Fascinating stuff.

Oh, and by the way, if somehow you still don't have a Gmail account. Drop me a line (nb [at] noahbrier.com) or comment, I should be able to hook you up.
