Holy storage Batman

I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I had some problems accessing my Yahoo! e-mail this morning. I just got back from a meeting to check my e-mail and I was presented with a page that informed me of the new services. Needless to say, I was shocked:

Welcome to the new and improved Yahoo! Mail Plus.

Yes, I am one of those folks who paid for the Plus account and have generally been pretty impressed with the better service compared to the time when I was a free user. As of this moment, the service seems a little more sluggish than normal. However, it may be because of the new services available. I am very very happy that I do not have to see ads though. I couldn’t tell you the amount of times that an ad for dating or certain drugs has come up while my boss was near me.

As far as the extra storage space, I could personally care less about it because my account never went past 5mb of the 25mb limit I had in the first place. Now’ it’ll be 5mb of 2gb that gets used.
