Holy cow 

Google is getting ready to roll out a new email service ("Gmail") that offers users 1 gigabyte of free storage.

Google's service, called "Gmail," will include a built-in search function that will let people search every e-mail they've ever sent or received.

According to company executives, users will be able to type in keywords to sort e-mails or find old missives. And it will come with 1 gigabyte of free storage - more than 100 times what some popular rivals offer and enough to hold 500,000 pages of e-mail.

That sounds pretty revolutionary. Yahoo mail, for example, offers 4 megabytes of free storage. And, obviously, there's no way to search every email you ever sent.
