Not thevoman in disguise.

As far as I know, as of June 7th's WSJ, you have to register with one of the banks underwriting the IPO and give the number of shares you're willing to buy and the price you're willing to pay. When bidding is done, Google and the banks will decide on the clearing price at which all of the shares offered will be sold.

Anyone who offered a price below this amount will not get any shares.

It's just an auction really. I expect there'll be people who significantly go over their original magic numbers as a result.

But I think is too much space for an email account, and for people like me with limited bandwith is not a great inprovement to be able to send video files, since the dl time is too long
wat kind of connection you are using? are you a modem user or a lan or wireless?...

Ahh...ok.
I was thinking the same thing about your last statement. If this is as big as everyone thinks it's going to be, only the big boys/girls will be able to play. However, if by some chance the price is around $20/share, it might not be a bad investment.

My conection is suppose to be dsl, but the max speed I get is 10Kb/s

for a short video send through email (between 1-5Mb) this speed is just fine, but for a 100 Mb video it would take very long.

Anyway I missed an important issue, mail accounts may have huge space, but the file size is always limited, as far as I know, it let you attach up to 10 Mb, so the possiblity of sending 200Mb files seems impossible for now

I've got a G-mail account with like a gig of storage and 10 meg e-mails. It's quite nice. Anyways does anyone know how I could access my g-mail with Thunderbird, or if that's even possible?
(I've been gone for a couple weeks if anyone cared why I wasn't posting)

Hmm thats strange... we should ALL have 100 meg accounts...wheather you just signed up or you have been signed up for 5 years.

At first I thought this was just a promation for my SBC DSL... then I was sitting in my computer sci. class at school checking out some stuff from my friend... low and behind he has 100 megs too...
(this is for subaccounts only - also its ad free so theres something good outta it)

If you have the main account you get 2 gigs of mail space. wow... ooo no lol

BUT REALISTICALLY come on! You're not going to full up 100 or 2 gigs worth of mail unless your a photographer working with high quality pics and PSD files.

Anyways I pop forward my mail so it makes no diff.

in short terms... you're only using a modem? right?... me my internet speed is only 1-6 kb/s... it's really hard for me to download files especially those files that reach 2 megs... it will take me 4-5mins to download that kind of file...

well sending those 10mb and 200mb files would'nt be hard if you're using a LAN w/ a download speed of 512kb/s...

Msn is starting to do the same thing now. Still its nothin compared to gmail (In my opinion) even though, I probably wont end up using 1gb of email space.

Loyalty?? The reason Yahoo upgraded accounts to 100mb was because they're going to be in competition soon with Microsoft and Google's email. Hotmail is going to be offering 250mb of email space this fall, and gmail is offering 1 gig of email space. Yahoo is just trying to get a head start in the storage space growth. I have 2 yahoo accounts, and they both have been upgraded to 100mb. Unlike yahoo, gmail will be having alot more ads in the emails you submit, and your privacy will be less secure (As said on the Jay Leno show).
