+ - Hotmail vs Gmail... 1:0 Hotmail 1

Submitted by

dummkopf writes "Just logged into my old MSN hotmail account to basically delete spam (when will the filter be more efficient, like in Gmail?) to suddenly notice a subtle little detail: "Hi, john doe! Mailbox usage: 1% of 5 GB"... Oops! Since when did hotmail increase this amount so drastically? In comparison, Gmail's ticker currently delivers "2895.3 megabytes", i.e., about 2.9 Gb storage. I guess the only winner is the customer here! As for the score in the title of the contribution: before I get flamed, roasted, thrown in tar, tied to a rock and thrown into a lake, it is probably 3:1 for Gmail if we include all other features as well as the lack of "in your face" ads.

Note that the log-in page of hotmail still shows "The new Hotmail brings you more. More space (2 GB), more security, still free. Sign up for our award-winning service." Maybe a typo? Who knows..."
