GMAIL is perfectly practical and also funky!
Google or Gmail Team can change the speed rate of their calculator.
With my Gmail data storage-space growth prediction tool you can briefly calculate the capacity increase. Or, in other words, how much of the free storage space Google adds, if any, for public into their Gmail email accounts.
On a daily bases, right from the dawn of the Google’s Gmail email service, ( the birth of Gmail = email accounts from Google ), extra storage space is continuously being added into all individual email accounts. This means that the free storage capacity, for each private inbox for instance, is consistently counting upwards and increasing. However that specific growing volume might change into different rates in time with new technologies Google uses or when they decide to bring new changes. At the moment the Gmail counter calculator is tuned up precisely and it’s based on 15 months of data collection, BUT, the factors will most probably have to be adjusted for example if the number on the counter changes in either way.
A bit about the history of Gmail from my perspective.
Some years ago, when I opened my first gmail email account, when it was first introduced and available for free but only on invitation from someone already owning the account (boy how much I was into owning my own gmail account) and so, one of those days I purchased my invite on eBay and I stopped using my previous web mail (here we can see another example of us, the people, having tendencies to turn into money for anyting on this planet!). Those days, the data storage capacity every gmail-account-holder had in disposition was around 1000 megabytes. Compare that with only 2 MB hotmail offered at that same time! This WAS 1 complete huge gigabyte we’re talking here. Today this storage space is at 7293 MB’s and increasing, getting close to big 8 Gigs, whilst I am still using only a small percentage fraction of the whole lot even though I receive many large files in my inbox constantly. The message at the bottom of my account page says: “You are currently using 27 MB (0%) of your 7295 MB.” I see that as <1% - less then 1 percent of today's current ~7.36 Gigabytes.
What I like about Google is that they are very consistent in what they are doing. The features other than the large free storage space that Gmail offers are absolutely great. A few of which like the spelling check, the spam filter, the private account google-like-search that i use regularly for finding those very old emails sent to me ( because there isn't a need to delete none of your old emails! ), I truly could not be without anymore in this fast life we live in ... and many more you can find in your account's settings page ( read more in the gmail info and help page. )
I bet that Google boys and girls think that SPACE IS UNLIMITED. For sure it is, all information, books and movies can be stored – saved – backed up there as well as absolutely everything else in digital form. You can see on the latest image that I started to use Chrome browser as per default on my PC ( waiting for the mac version ) and as soon as the Google Chrome OS free open source Operating System is available for public in only a few months from now, I am installing it right from the start [EDIT: Chrome OS is already here! In fact, now I cannot wait to put my hands on my first laptop running on Chrome OS]. I would be delighted if Google were the business starting as the first with video-take ( borrowing movies as we know it but between continents in a video-download form … do it from home type of a program instead and, no driving anywhere for this reason ), it could be called perhaps ‘youvideo’. In regards to your gmail account; it’s worthy for the future so choose a perfect password and don’t forget changing it regularily, here is Gmail email sign up page.
