Get an Unlimited Storage Email Account at Yahoo! Mail Free

Do you ever delete messages, not because they’re useless, but rather just because you’re running out of space in you account?   Do you remember the other year when Google launched the account size war for email on April 1st with their free 1 GB Gmail accounts?  Quickly, Yahoo!Mail and others upped their limits.  To this day, Google has been ever increasing storage limits for all users — it’s now over 2GB per account.  But for some, this is not enough – especially with everyone emailing you video clips and hi-res photos they took recently.   Yahoo! is now the first to make a move to make storage limits a moot point in the email wars. . .If you have a Yahoo!Mail account, you can now have unlimited storage space for all your emails.  No more deleting anything that might be remotely useful in the future.  (and just think you can look back in a couple of years at the terrabytes of SPAM that you’ve received too!). How can Yahoo! afford to give away unlimited email storage? Yahoo has been developing an efficient backend storage system. This updated storage system gives you the option to never delete another email! Unless, of course, you want to.     What exactly does unlimited storage mean? The purpose of unlimited storage isn’t to provide an online storage warehouse. Usage that suggests this approach gets flagged by Yahoo! Mail’s anti-abuse controls.

Movie Follow-up: “Surf’s Up” Family Reviews Get Thumbs Up

Just checking in to let you know that we did in fact see “Surf’s Up”, the computer animated movie about Cody Maverick, the surfing penguin and Big “Z” with our 2 kids tonight.   It was completely on target with what we found at the online family movie review sites we discussed recently.  The 5+ age rating was appropriate and the specific details in the review were exactly what we found when seeing it in the theater.   No surprises.  That’s what you like as a parent when bringing your kids to the movies.     Kudos to the About.com Kids Movie & TV site and CommonSenseMedia review site we featured in our last post.     Now our kids are both asleep, dreaming of surfing, penguins and catching that next wave. . .

Google Maps Street View Bloopers & Odd Photo Captures

Google Maps Street View Bloopers & Odd Photo Captures

Recently, Google added “Street View” photography to Google Maps by sending vans with cameras around major metro cities across the country.  As time goes by and as the Google vans log more miles, more and more of our cities will be available to view as if you were there there – whether the people on the street like it or not. On the upside, you can set better expectations for where you’re headed by seeing 360 degree photo panoramas of any captured location or route: You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video But one side-effect of this freeze-frame approach to Google Maps Street View is capturing what a given block looks like at street level is apparent in some of the examples we’ve found through the StreeView feature: Crime in progress!
