Unlimited Storage Capacity By Yahoo

This is good news.Yahoo announced today that they will give users of it's email service unlimited storage capacity.The move is a tribute to Yahoo Mail's 10th birthday and today's data-rich internet lifestyle.In a phased roll-out beginning in May, Yahoo will eliminate the one-gigabyte cap on memory for people with free email accounts and two-gigabyte cap of memory for those who pay for premium accounts.Although I don't use Yahoo email so much this is very good.Yahoo Mail is the most popular web-based email service and had more than 250 million users as of January, according to industry-tracking comScore Media Metrix.The elimination of the storage cap comes at a time when costs of computer storage are declining and in the face of a relentless trend for people to exchange video, music and other data-laden digital files online.Well done Yahoo but I like more Gmail!
