    Sounds like it could be pretty cool.

    1 gig of free storage!? Holy crap, even though its a ***** to switch over e mail addresses on everything I still might do it cause yahoo doesn't give you **** for space.

    Dare I say I might abandon my good old hotmail account that hasn't changed in almost 8 years? With a free email account that has that much storage, I would in a heartbeat. I'm getting annoyed with having to forward all those big picture emails to another account so that my main one doesn't reach "full" and then stop receiving emails period. Ugh. DAMN YOU MICrelflageatneaglamk (Oh cmon, you don't think I'd risk it with Billie watching everything posted everywhere and anywhere on the net? :teeth: )

    The whole google getting a email server is actually old news, but no details were released before.

    With 1GB of storage I think google will become not only the no.1 search engine, but the no.1 free email server on the net in a few years. Ha take that you multi-billion dollar MSN industry that still wants to charge us to get a better email account! HA!

    As Minus just said, this is old news. I posted about it maybe a month ago. . .got like 2 replies. Anywho yeah I am waiting for it. The hard part will be getting the servers up and going well enough to support that massive surge of email sign ups afterwards. I also won't mind adding a 7th device to my backup routine.(I do lots of web work so I gotta be covered. :drool: :cheesy: )

    Exactly what I am going to do, only I will bet the attachment of mp3s will be limited in the future(if the RIAA gets its demented ways) along with the other music/video formats.


    Like I said this will be wonderful for offsite storage of my sites I am working on.

    I think Google is trying to further its lead as the most visited site on the internet. Well besides dii.net of course.

    I guarantee the TOS will include wording preventing you from sending copyrighted material that you don't own to other people. I haven't seen much about it yet, but my brother's involved in the testing of the service so once I hear stuff from him I'll let you know what it's like. :)

    I don't need the account, but you can bet I'll get one.
