Good News for Gmail Users

Haochi from Googlified dug into the source code of Gmail's homepage and found that the storage estimation has been updated. The new entries indicates that the storage will be:

  1. 2912MB by October 11, 2007 midnight Google time
  2. 4.2GB by the 23rd this month
  3. 6GB by January 4th next year
  4. 42GB by the year of 2038
  5. and 2.70266701 × 1072 TB* by 1/2/3456 7:00
Though I doubt the possibility of getting TBs in Gmail ... I still think that getting 42GB is possible. The spontaneous update for paid storage might be a prove:
  • The previous rates were:
    6 GB ($20.00 USD per year)
    25 GB ($75.00 USD per year)
    100 GB ($250.00 USD per year)
    250 GB ($500.00 USD per year)
  • Now they are:
    10 GB ($20.00 USD per year)
    40 GB ($75.00 USD per year)
    150 GB ($250.00 USD per year)
    400 GB ($500.00 USD per year)
Let's wait and see ...

Update: The counter update is confirmed in the Official Gmail Blog and that they are really aiming at infinity + 1! Look at the counter: It's speeding now!
