... starting today, we're beginning the roll-out of our new and top secret Infinity+1 storage plan. The key features are:
Keeping one step head of the competition...or is it just April the 1st again. I like the counter anyway.
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

They know that Y! MSN and other competitors can only offer infinity for storage, so they've made an "pre-emptive strike" by offering infinity + 1 storage plan. Brilliant!
But did you notice this: Double up on Gigs
I never go to gmail to login, because I always use my cookies for Gmail Notifier. It just so happens I cleared my cookies today.
My question is why would anyone need that much storage, except maybe for all the Viagra spam?
Maybe now you can pass your gmail account onto your kids :-)
Over 2000 megabytes of storage (and counting) for every user.
It will stop at 2 gigs (I think)
Well I was wrong - it's still running - now at 2035 MB.
They really meant infinity + 1.
My question is why would anyone need that much storage
That's exactly why they can do it. 99% of their users will never reach 1 GB let alone infinity. Our main account after 1 year is still under 50 MB and if I manually cleared the trash box it would go down to 35 MB.

Actually it looks like I've been seeing two versions of the login page.

Of course, I have all 2050 available - I have never used my Gmail address. Maybe it is time.
>>I think I'll host a website in an email.
Pretty funny. Let me know if you figure out how ;)
