GMail fired the first volley, of course, hitting the long-entrenched Yahoo and Hotmail right on the keister. Yahoo’s returning fire today, expanding user’s accounts to 10 MB per email and 100 MB of overall storage. They’ve also cleaned up the interface a bit. Who’s colors will fly at the end of the battle remains unknown, but there’s no doubt that our kids will refer to us as “the second greatest generation” for surviving the Freemail Wars of 04-05.
There may be some glitches while Yahoo moves over to this new system – I’ve having some problems accessing my account at the moment. But hey, at least they don’t read my email!
