This Sort of Thing Is My Bag Baby

It was only a matter of time.

Says Yahoo Mail today:

"As of June 15, 2004, you'll enjoy the following benefits:
Increased storage capacity from your current level to 100MB
Increase in total message size to 10MB
A streamlined interface that's even easier to use."

Thank you Google... for tightening the screws.
And for providing a situation in which I get to crow a big loud
"I told you so."
That's always so much fun (and attractive).

Still, they don't even come close... Google offers 1000MB of storage!!
It's Yahoo's grudging reaction to getting some stiff competition.

This brings to mind the words of our wise friend Austin Powers:
"Shall we shag now, or shall we shag later?"

Because now, my Occasionally Accurate Crystal Ball reads:
Yahoo and other free email accounts will perhaps put forth more effort to control SPAM.
--- it's THEIR problem now!
