Was listening to a key note address for Open Source Conference by Tim O’Reilly. And he mentioned that you can’t get your mail out of Google. To be fair, all webmail systems lock you in in the same way. Only, Google say – Have a Gigabyte of storage (and we’ll lock you in even harder). Cunning!
As O’Reilly goes on to say – we should really be thinking about the consequences of this now rather than in a couple of years time when we have a half a gig of mail on their system.
