my point is:
if you look at the fine print in gmail eventually it will start charging you $ to use the service, and after 8-9n years of use I am at 50% of my allowed GB space which is being gobbled up at an exponential rate because of all the multimeia we send each other now - SO either I start deleting everything now and make a habit of it OR I become a slave to the google mail pay scheme in just a few years time...
I have been using gmail for how many years now? since I was first available - I think 2005?
the tagline at the time read something like "never have to delete another message ever."
ok, - unnecessary, perhaps, but fine - sure.
FAST FORWARD to the present and we all have MBs zipping in and out of our phones - NOT the case back in 2005 when the smartphone / data plan was yet-to-come and definitley before everyone and their dog was all over the internet on their mobile devices all the time.
