Holy shit!

What's new on Gmail?
Just launched!

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.


Well that's good news for all of us Gmail users :D

And with at least 50 invites per account, if you send them all to yourself, and use GmailFS (http://richard.jones.name/google-hacks/gmail-filesystem/gmail-filesystem.html), that's 100 Gig of free web-based storage for you to use.

Amazing - now you can keep all your spam instead of deleting it. :confused:

I like the fact that you can send exe's and mp3's, whereas you can't with hotmail.

Oh, I see. Rather than posting a link to an FTP site you can email the whole file...

... I guess it saves the user time, but I can see why email operators aren't so keen.
