My personal Gmail account was running out of space before I did a massive clean up couple weeks ago, by deleting all emails with large attachments.
Well, now I’m expecting such problem will not occur again after this official news from Gmail blog. At the moment, Gmail storage is ever increasing as part of their “Infinity+1” storage plan. Now Gmail is going to speed up the counter and giving out more free storage as time passes by. In other words, it simply means you’ll be rewarded with more and more storage space in every second, every minute and everyday!
Hopefully, your Gmail account will not run out of space unless your rate of using the email storage is faster than the rate of Gmail increase their storage space. :D

- Internet Explorer 6.0 or later on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista
- Firefox 2.0 on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista
- Firefox 2.0 on Mac OS X 10.2.x and later
No information on how it will run in a Unix system though.
I’ve been thinking of getting a smartphone with PDA function since long time ago. However, I didn’t really go into surveying the features and prices for such device because most of them are cater for business and corporate users.
Out of a sudden, on September 27th Palm Inc. announced its first entry level smartphone : Palm Centro. It is designed for individuals and traditional mobile phone users. Not to mention it’s using Palm OS 5.4.9, not Wiindows Mobile other smartphone in the market using.
