Google : Trying To Become Microsoft Of Information

Rajesh Jain comments on Google that it is trying to be Microsoft of Information over the web. Recently Google launched a test with about 1,000 invited guests set to try out a new e-mail service called "Gmail." Gmails's highlights are as follows :

Search: Built on Google search technology, Gmail enables people to quickly search every email they've ever sent or received. Using keywords or advanced search features, Gmail users can find what they need, when they need it.

Storage: Google believes people should be able to hold onto their mail forever. That's why Gmail comes with 1,000 megabytes (1 gigabyte) of free storage – more than 100 times what most other free webmail services offer.

Speed: Gmail makes using email faster and more efficient by eliminating the need to file messages into folders, and by automatically organizing individual emails into meaningful "conversations" that show messages in the context of all the replies sent in response to them. And it turns annoying spam e-mail messages into the equivalent of canned meat.

Before you start considering this as a joke John Battelle's Searchblog has an unconfirmed response from Yahoo!. Whatever it may be I M LOVIN IT .
