Jordan Novet wonders why Google hasn’t updated storage limits for years.
One reason [Gmail] was revolutionary was its gigabyte of free storage space — the idea being that you wouldn’t have to constantly be deleting email in order to keep things going.
But today, I’m in a jam. I’ve run out of space across Gmail, the Google Drive storage service and the Google Photos app.
It’s a problem I felt, until I started compressing photos in Google Photos (and I haven’t genuinely noticed a downside of compressing them).
Once upon a time it felt like storage would never be an issue. Charles Arthur noted that perhaps the world is running out of storage. “Wouldn’t that be a thing? No room left on the internet.”
