Gmail's Infinity + 1 Storage Plan

Article Reads:17485

On Friday, April 1, Google announced their “Infinity+1” plan for Gmail accounts. The first day, we lucky Gmail account holders gained about 1MB. We weren’t holding our breath, considering the announcement was made on April Fool’s Day - and sounded pretty foolish to boot. Here are the details of the Google storage algorithm:


* Gmail is currently rising at 1/1000 MB every 25 seconds
* A 1MB increase takes a little over 6 hours and 56 minutes
* Every day storage increases by 3.456 MB
* By April 1, 2006, Gmail accounts will be up to about 3300MB
* It takes 289 days to increase 1 gigabyte

So is Google really going to just continue to increase storage infinitely? A look at the source code indicates that the madness will end when mailboxes reach 2075 gigs:

 

That only applies until it reaches 2075 MB.
