It was only a matter of time I suppose, but Google are allegedly going to launch a free email service, with 1GB of storage space.
Pretty cool considering Yahoo, Hotmail etc offer around 2MB, Google said that the idea is "you'll never need to delete anything".
Having said that, it doesn't take all that long to build up a whopping MS Outlook .pst file, so I wonder what the policy'll be regarding attachments etc.
Apparently advertisments will pay for the service, maybe in the form of embedded personalised ads (a la Ad-Sense), which sounds a bit instrusive to me....
