So i logged into my yahoo account the other day and was surprised to find myself staring at an unfamilliar screen. I decided to read the thing and it said that not only would yahoo look prettier from now on but that I also had 2 GIGS of space at my disposal!!! (I am a YahooPlus subscriber, 100mg is included with the free subscription) This new got me so excited and happy that I actually called my buddy to tell him about it. After sometime I began to question why a company would do something like this for me... what was the catch? So today I did some research, maybe most of you already know but it was news to me to hear that there is a big showdown between MSN, Yahoo and Google. Turns out Google is aggressively getting into the e-mail business. They claim that users will have 1GB storage at no charge. In addition, they will use a revolutionary new search engine to sort emails rather than folders. How convenient that the same search engine will also be used to scan the content of an incoming e-mail and call up adverting based on its content This scares me a little... Anyway, reading this article and the links provided answered my question as to why corporate America decided to give me a hand out. This is the only way that yahoo will be able to keep its share of the market. Apparently this could be a money looser for web-based e-mail companies as this kind of storage still doesn't come cheep.
