Google Paper: Talking too soon.

The article seems to say that Google Paper is a fact. We don't really know this, the whole idea seems quite ridiculous. The reference http://mail.google.com/mail/help/paper/more.html should at least have been laid down. (I don't know how to reference myself. If this is to be left there at least put the reference there. Tank 12:28, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

I haven't looked in the article yet, but if this is mentioned as a feature it shouldn't be. This appears to be one of Google's 2007 April Fool's jokes (click the "Program Policies" link at the bottom of the page you gave). I'm going to check the article now to make sure this is gone. — Tuvok[T@lk/Improve me] 00:47, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
OK, phew. Gmail Paper is now said to be a joke in the article. Glad someone did that (not me, unfortunately). — Tuvok[T@lk/Improve me] 00:50, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
I like how the part about Gmail Paper is still mentioned as a joke, but I don't think that the Announcement portion of Product Development is the appropriate place for it. If it is to be kept, it should be put elsewhere. Any suggestions? --Entoaggie09 04:33, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
Is the explanation of Google Paper at such great length necessary? It was an April Fool's Day gag - I don't think it needs more than a passing reference. If someone really wants to include it, why not create a 'Google April Fool's Day Jokes' page? Demosthenes X 21:57, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

SKYMAIL

WHY did someone remove the part I added in ages ago about their deal with sky? It was all good information, I added source and some fool removed it. It makes no sense. Crazy fool. 80.229.241.200 13:21, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

It wasn't a direct deal with Gmail. It was an overall Google deal, so I moved it to the main Google article. Mambo Jambo 17:15, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

How the Heck?

How the heck does GMAIL offer so much space? How can they afford to have nearly 2.8GB for each user? Do they just hope that we all don't use all the space given to us? Can someone explain? Gautam Discuss 20:14, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Apparently, they've got more than one hard drive in their main office... Mambo Jambo 22:29, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
LOL! That's a good one...OF COURSE they do :p ... I am still wondering how they do it. Gautam Discuss 19:42, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
Also consider the fact that, although each user is allotted 2.8GB of space, most aren't using that much so the total capacity in use is much less than you'd expect. I've had my account since a month or two after launch, and have an extensive amount of large email attachments, thousands of lengthy emails, and still only have used about 15% of my capacity.
