Has anyone seen Google's new idea for there GMail service? Infinity+1?

http://xs.to/xs.php?h=xs22&d=05135&f=loco.png

Who knows maybe this isn't a joke... If you remember Google did come out on April 1st of last year and everyone thought it was a joke of them even doing this... So yea...

But hey, I don't mind "infinity+1" email service! :thumbsup:! :flowers::cool:

edit: I would have uploaded to my website, but yea, I have problems with the cPanel at school and also were not allowed to "install" anything on here, so I can't install a ftp program... :trumpet:

EDIT: Also since I'm at school it won't let me access http://gmail.google.com/gmail/help/about_whatsnew.html this link about "what they will do." Cause the filter blocks e-mail services. But I found a "special URL" that the filter doesn't block that lets me into gmail. ;) So yea...

2nd EDIT: NVM I just found a way to goto http://gmail.google.com/gmail/help/about_whatsnew.html (hehe) I just added "s" after http and before the : and it let me view it. :inlove::)

3rd EDIT:

G is for growth
Storage is an important part of email, but that doesn't mean you should have to worry about it. To celebrate our one-year birthday, we're giving everyone one more gigabyte. But why stop the party there? Our plan is to continue growing your storage beyond 2GBs by giving you more space as we are able. We know that email will only become more important in people's lives, and we want Gmail to keep up with our users and their needs. From Gmail, you can expect more.

for the username field appears too low when there are table rows (in any
ancestor table) above the iframe -->

This increase has been confirmed by several news sources, and is certainly in line with their policy:

          </li>
        </ul>


So it looks like the code for the megabytes, imo (i'm not a javascript expert), but by the looks of it, it looks like its time based.
