Yahoo goes to the gig

As is has been reported by many news outlets, yahoo mail has bumped to 1gig of free space. This is nice (too bad I hate yahoo mail because they make sure that your gig is used by spam), but what about paid subscribers. I remember in the days of 6meg email boxes, I paid $30 a year to have a huge 100megs. Then they bumped free people to 250megs and paid to 2gigs (lordy). Now what? 5gigs for paid subscribers? How about 10?

Oh well, Gmail still offers a better service, a better interface, and free POP access (And their ads are less annoying for sure).
