so gmail is upping it's storage to 2 GB today, with an infinite-storage plan (they'll keep upping it as long as you need more). what i find particularly cool is the counter they've stuck on - a quick peek at the source code shows that the counter will hit 2050 MB at 6:00 AM tomorrow. Odd that they used 1025 instead of 1024 and their counter runs for 30 hours instead of 24. i guess they're just accounting for all the time zones across north america..

ETA: it's not just the counter on the main page; if you log in to gmail and check your % usage, the total size seems to be going up incrementally too.. cool :)
