mindreader.google.com

Folks at Google remain busy, busy, busy.

Gmail now gives everyone two gigabytes of storage, and the same kind of text markup that Blogger uses. I knew these were coming.

I've predicted the text markup ever since they bought Blogger.

The space increase had to happen, too. Google started by giving users 1G apiece. I've been telling anyone who'd listen that this limit was token -- that they might as well have said they were giving us a terabyte. Disk capacities grow so fast that by the time anyone hits a gig, they'll be giving everyone ten. (Hitachi's making me look smarter every day.)

Deleting email is history.

And, as of today, Google maps has satellite pictures. I can see your house from up here. This was a welcome development; the Keyhole stuff has been, until now, confined to proprietary platforms, and I was worried because it was taking so long to appear for the rest of us.

High-resolution photos are still confined to the U.S. and Canada, but if you zoom out, you can scroll around the world -- literally. Go west and you end up where you started. Magellan would be proud.

Looks like the pictures are from the summertime. Greenland's a solid sheet of ice, but Alaska's mostly green.

Still no further progress on Google Mentalplex but the Greasemonkey Google Mind-Reading trick is almost as good.
