Gmail goes to 2 gigs

Google announced recently that the one gigabyte storage limit for Gmail will be increased to two gigabytes.

Of course, the big question is "When is Gmail going to be public?"

Makes you wonder why they keep improving the service, but make people beg to get invitations to use the service. Wouldn't it make more sense to move out of the "beta" stage before doubling the storage? Google will not discuss when, or even if, Gmail will be public.

Asked whether access to Gmail accounts would ever be totally open, Harik declined to answer. "We keep looking for ways to make it more broadly available to people who want to use it," he said. --PCWorld Australia
