Gmail getting bigger?

Gmail getting bigger?Looks like Gmail may be bumping those free accounts to 4GB by the end of the month, and rumors are 6GB in January.

Remember when I talked about a Firefox extension that turns Gmail accounts in to virtual storage drives?  Heh.  It’ll be like having a 4GB hard drive added to all your computers.  (and 6GB later on)

A lot of folks go “But Yahoo has unlimited space already!”  This is true… and they have a lousy interface.  I can hardly ever load my old emails on Yahoo, but with Google they always pop right up.  Gee… what a shock.

This really leads me to something I’ve noticed lately that Yahoo is just sucking for the most part.  None of their technology is updating, it’s beginning to look dated, and if they want any hope of keeping up with Google, they need to invest in some new tech, and they need to do it soon.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I thought to go to Yahoo first, and that used to be a multiple times a day stop for me.

    You aren't lying about Yahoo! mail … the upgraded version SUCKS to high heaven and I've gone back to the old classic version ….

  • Jo – Yep. The new Yahoo is a joke. I have no clue what they were thinking.

    I feel the same way about yahoo, never go there anymore and it used to be my first stop. Honestly I think gmail is getting much better than any other free email services, its reliable, lots of storage (that you can use as a HD) and they keep updating it.

  • Anyone here know that if it’s legal to use Gdrive (3rd-party extension/SW) from Google perspective? I’m just don’t dare to try coz afraid Google will just disable my account and all my emails gone.

    Could anyone check this out with Google?

  • Joean – Gdrive has been around for quite awhile, and I have heard of no problems. What I did though was open a second Gmail account just for Gdrive use, and I don’t store anything there of great importance.

  • David – Exactly. Yahoo is just a joke at this point on just about everything they offer. Mail, instant messaging, search… it’s kind of sad to watch to be honest.
