Gmail was yesterday officially 1 year old.[1] After last years announcement of Gmail from Google, which was nicely timed for April fools day. This years Gmail bombshell is that there will be a possibility for infinite storage with Google already moving stroage up to 2GB thats what some paid services offer. Rumours do exsist that you can already fill your Gmail account to more than 100% (105% for example) which is not confirmed in anyway.[2] However could be entirely possible as filling Gmail is proving for me and many others to be difficult. There are reports on slashdot of nice new features on Gmail such as coloured text, a full list can be found on Gmail's help pages.[3]
