    Who cares

    Gmail, what an overrated, overhyped service. Ooh, 2GB email!

    I Care

    I like Gmail a lot and think it has come a long way in the past year. However, I'm wondering if the 2gig idea is an April Fools day joke or not. Hard to say.

    Funny you should bring that up. They announce the 1Gig email last year on April 1st. A lot of people--myself included--thought it was an April fool's joke. It turned out not to be.

    Personally, i think gmail is the best, most highly functional, but yet simple email service available. I love it and use it everyday. Those google people are geniuses.

    Anyone hear a rumor that they recently acquired one of microsoft's top OS people? Think about it... a google OS!? I hate to say it... but it would have potential to kick every other OS's butt. I doubt it will actually happen.

    Tried it...

    But I went back to yahoo mail. Yahoo mail has a lot more useful features. While I like the security gmail offers, I can't filter all my messages through it and then respond using other e-mail account addresses as I can in yahoo mail. Also if you set up a filter in gmail filtered mail will not show up as new mail.

    datarescue

    We've posted a review of Data Rescue from ProSoft

    Does this mean that the software is from Prosoft, or the review? I mean, if its the review, I have a feeling its going to be slightly slanted towards the product.

    I personally think Gmail kicks the competition to the curb! And to think they're adding another gig...BONUS!!

    Big whoop!

    Ooooo! 2GB! Like umagosh! These guys must be GODS!!!

    Guess what? I can get 250GB email. Yeah, I just buy a hard drive, plug it in my computer, and got instant search, no need for a browser, and it's totally secure. Plus I don't have to totally give up my privacy to have 100x more space, just a little cash.

    Remember, Google is a public company, which means it's desperate for profits (as opposed to just needs profits for private companies), and will have to use whatever means to ensure those profits. So kiss your privacy goodbye!

    @Sebastien

    if you got your letters over the internet, you never had privacy...it was sent plain text through several hops, and at least one server, if not two, kept a copy of the mail.

    on the other hand you have a pseudo kind of privacy, in that noone can really comprehend everything going over the transom.

    I think the point about a webmail service, is its not on your hard drive...you can go to work, or your friends house or an internet cafe in bangkok, and check your mail.

    Yeah, but they're not kept indefinitly, being scanned for potential ad-spamming,

    And yes, I CAN have full privacy by using PGP. Not so with GoopMail

    Get a clue.
