On a serious point though, I doubt google are going
to get any multiplexing gain (from many users only
using a small amount of storage), for the obvious
reason of SPAM. Or are you going to have spam filters
and not statically allocate the 1GB to each person?
I'm guessing that you may have spam filters and
that the add revenue will be sufficient so that you
can statically allocate the storage.
