1514MB in Gmail

Gmail Quota

Gmail Quota

When I got a Gmail invite in June 2004 (I did beg for it), I thought yaay 1GB worth of email that’s more than I could ever need.  Today after emptying my trash, deleting spam and any other useless emails I realized I had filled 21% of my quota.  I still have lots to go but I do delete emails which I find useless and not worth keeping yet I still have managed to accumulate 1.5 GB.  I am not sure if that is because I like to keep good email or because I have lots of important attachments which I also like to have saved.

It reminded me of the time I bought my first 1GB harddrive many many years ago and I also thought at the time why on earth do I need all that storage for.  After building a large collection of ebooks, the introduction of digital cameras and lots of good songs later, I now know that you will always find ways to fill up all that memory.

    The way Gmail raised the bar was so amazing and revolutionary that everyone just followed in their foot steps.
    Thank you Gmail

      @Qwaider: they sure did, not just the quota but the labels, the way you can search and everything else too.
