Gmail Allocation Slowly Increasing
The press was effusive when Gmail came out with a <gasp!>1 GB</gasp!> limit. They just spewed all over themselves when Yahoo! matched it. They choked when Gmail went to <gasp!>2 GB</gasp!> of space. Since then, Google has been slowly increasing personal allocation. Of course, since Gmail is not yet at the next (psychologically significant) whole number <gasp!>3 GB</gasp!> barrier, the press is silent. This morning, my Gmail inbox holds this line: You are currently ......

Shutting Down Comments on a Post
I never thought that I would have to do it, but I shut down comments on my Gmail post and removed it from syndication. People got completely out of control with wanting Gmail invites. The ME TOO! cries were mostly from India, but there were others as well. I got tired of the inbox spam feeling. If you need a Gmail account, just wait. They will open it up again. I have no invites available. Update 1: See the comment below for what I mean ......

Google's Eyes are on Gmail
My earlier entry on this topic got the most interest of anything that I've written on this as-yet young blog. Now that the Gmail vitriol has subsided somewhat, we are beginning to see some more rational evaluations of the future service. The best so far seems to be David Pogue's evaluation in today's New York Times. His article was expanded on by Robert MacMillan in his Filter column in the Washington Post. Both are recommended to be read carefully. For an opposite view, read Walt Mossberg's piece ......

Google's Eyes
Update: ExtremeTech posted a great article on this subject by Jim Lynch that brings out even points than I do here. I like his point of assumed entitlement. Recommended. There has been a big flap over Google's announced Gmail product. The first big negative salvo I saw was Cynthia Webb's Filter column in the Washington Post. She gives the “privacy advocates” big ink on the purported “intrusion” into your email. The Gmail privacy policy is pretty clear on what Google will and ......
