Google continues to baffle me. This morning it announced Picasa Web to link its desktop photo organizing app to a personal 250mb inhouse photo sharing site, alongside of which the company announced it would allow you to upgrade to 6gb of storage for $25/year.
That’s nice, but here’s my question: Why the hell hasn’t Google announced the same thing for Gmail? As I and others continue to point out, we heavy Gmail users are steadily running out of account space, and Google has no response, beyond the tacit notion that you get another Gmail account once the first one fills. What silliness.
Listen guys: I would cheerfully pay $25 /yr per 6gb storage increment. Get on with it already.
[Update] Apparently Google employees get 1 tb Gmail limits. Nuts.
