Gmail Rocks

For the second year in row Google has made a splash on April Fools Day.

Last year, Google announced to the world a free email service called Gmail which included 1 gigabyte of free storage. At the time of last years announcement, many people thought Google's announcement was simply an April Fools' Day joke since the amount of storage space being offered was so much greater than the amount being offered by competitors Yahoo! and Hotmail.

This April 1st, Google is telling its users that the 'G' in Gmail stands for growth so they have rolled out their new "top secret Infinity+1 storage plan". The details of the Infinity +1 plan aren't being released but the company says the first step is to double the amount of storage space available to its users to 2 gigabytes.

They are at this very moment running a counter on their website. The value of the counter is being upgrading the webmail storage of every GMail account around continuously! I expect this counter to last until the time it reaches the 2GB mark. Or maybe not! Maybe Google will just let it continue to fulfill their promise of infinity plus one initiative!

They have surprised us before. This sounds to be another one. Or maybe this one is an April Fools Joke. However, for that Google had Google Gulp Beta!
