Google Cuts Prices on Extra Gmail and Picasa Storage
When Gmail introduced free multigigabyte mailboxes for the masses, a lot of us suddenly got spoiled about storing years of email with enormous attachments, without deletion. Five years later, power Gmail users find themselves approaching their free storage limit.
If you’re one of those users, fear not. Google has slashed prices on extra storage for Gmail and Picasa. Now you can get 20 gigabytes for five dollars a year. If you need even more than that — say, if you send and receive dozens of enormous files via email every day, or if you store millions of high-resolution raw photos online — packages scale all the way up to an amazing 16 terabytes for $4,096 annually. Cloud storage pack rats rejoice!
