gmail…. definitely has created a revolution of sorts. Imagine if it was not for gmail, we would have been struggling with our 10MB mailboxes. Both yahoo and hotmail users has benefitted immensely from it. I’m sure both the biggies are now on their toes to improve on their service. First to match up to gmail(Read: Google’s) standards and then probably to exceed it.
The heat is on, on the seach engine front also; where the same players are fighting for the supremacy in lucrative search market.
Presumably they all will survive and make profit but who makes the most is to be seen. Whoever wins the race, at the end of it all YOU (the Consumer) will emerge the king.
