In an effort to stay on top, Google is changing their ‘email capacity algorithm’. Makes sense considering today’s file sizes – especially photo file sizes – are growing every year. Course our compression technology will get better and so will the cost of storage.
Here’s how the storage increase will break out:
- 2912MB by October 11, 2007 midnight Google time
- 4.2GB by the 23rd of this month
- 6GB by January 4th next year
- 42GB by the year of 2038
- 2.70266701 × 1072 TB* by 1/2/3456 7:00
