What, google will give you 1Tb of storage? that's just Stupid. I only have an 80Gb HDD, FGS.

Hang on, just checked <A HREF="http://gmail.google.com/gmail/help/about.html" target="_new">G-mail's Site</A> and it says
Quote:
Gmail is a free, search-based webmail service that includes 1,000 megabytes (1 gigabyte) of storage

. Not 1 Tb. Or am I looking at the wrong google e-mail? :eek: 

That said, 1Gb of e-mail storage is still ridiculous.

Thanks for the link.

I can't believe they're actually going to offer 1 Terabyte for free. This has got to be either a cock-up somewhere or they're simply gambling that no-one is actually going to use it, which makes it a marketing excercise. Although I notice that google declined to comment, according to that article.

It's a typo. Hardwareboss did it.

It's ***just*** 1GB, not 1TB. But they better have a lot of TB of server space, 'cause many people will join!!!

Oh no!

I checked!

Some accounts have 1TB limit!

That doesn't even make sense! Noone needs that much space at all......... It's like saying, 'here's your 100TB HDD' - heck, I don't need that much space!'

Hey, if someone's going to give me a 100TB HDD, I'll happily have it :smile: .

That said though, after careful consideration, I belive the 1Tb limit is <b><font color=blue>N</font color=blue><font color=red>U</font color=red><font color=green>T</font color=green><font color=yellow>S</font color=yellow>!</b>

Ummm, they might as well give me a HDD with a few gigabytes per second of read/write speed (like memory), never mind 100TB. Access speed is still much more interesting than capacity!...

Or just imagine caching the whole OS in memory! 2GB of address space for the whole OS, reading any OS data in like 5GB/s... 100 times faster than HDDs!

Question: when will google make this service available?

When will beta testing end?

When will they go official?

No release date from Google yet. On the 1000MB free email. Lycos launched their 1GB email at $7 US per month.

Your saying most poeple will not need that much. But look at as a company needs it. Let say a computer comany or a company like walmart. Where they have tons of email.

Only thing I can think of who would need that much.

Check again :)

Anyway, with my current ISP I'm limited to 20 GB traffic per month, only 15% (3 GB) of which is upload, so it would take me almost exactly a year just fill up 1 TB :)  Provided I had enough data in he first place. 100 GB would be nice though, to store my collection of XviD DVD rips :)

They should just follow their name and give us a googlebyte.

Googlebyte?

So what's a google..

I believe it's a 1 with 30 ... 0's

1000000000000000000000000000000

How about a google-plex

I think that is a google to the googelth power

in other words

1000000000000000000000000000000

x

1000000000000000000000000000000

but keep on doing that for a google amount of times.


That's one big a$$ number... but to hell with that if i'm leaveing yahoo mail I want a google-plex worth of terabyte's. Now that would be some kick a$$ storage space.

If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.

GMail not Google mail. Yes for googlebyte.

KB = 2^10 = 1024 bytes
MB = 2^20 = 1024*1024=1 048 576 bytes
GB = 2^30 = 1 073 741 824 bytes
TB = 2^40 = 1 099 511 627 776 bytes

<b><font color=blue>G</font color=blue><font color=red>o</font color=red><font color=yellow>o</font color=yellow><font color=blue>g</font color=blue><font color=green>l</font color=green><font color=red>e</font color=red>byte</b>= 2^((2^40)!)!

Now that would be big.

Thanks for breaking that down for us.

Sir, I accept ur challenge. Given enough time, any size HDD can be filled to max with porn! If need be, I'll make my own kinky fcuked up movies.

SEX is like math. Add the bed, subtract the clothes, divide the legs, and hope you dont multiply
