Gmail Free Storage Keeps Increasing ?

I have used Gmail for some years. and I know the Gmail site keep changing the available space, the number seems keep increasing. But I thought it is fake just like TV advertisement.

Today I watched their number for some while, and got to know the number is real, they are really keep increasing the storage !


You can see they increase the storage by 4 bytes every second.

That means you can get Gmail storage increase 24 X 60 X 60 X 4 = 345600 bytes every day.

1024 bytes = 1 Kilobytes
1024 Kilobytes  = 1 Megabytes
1024 Megabytes = 1 Gigabytes
1024 Gigabytes = 1 Terabytes

So if you want 1GB more Gmail storage, you have to wait for:

1024 X 1024 X 1024 / 345600 = 3106.89 days = 8.5 years.

So you know now the Gmail storage increasing is actually not fast, and you should not be too exiting about this. any other big computer can also provide this rate increasing of storage, such as Microsoft, Yahoo. Microsoft has already provided over 25GB free storage in Hotmail. The Gmail service currently provides more than 7.5 GB of free storage.
